Race Report – 23 November 021  Whangaehu Two Up TT

The annual two up time trial gave those who wanted to the opportunity to squeeze into a skinsuit, wear a pointy aero helmet and dust off the their speed machines. For the 19 teams that presented themselves the course was a 40km out and return up the Whangaehu Valley with the start/finish line on Bideford road.

The Whangaehu road is undulating but has no real climbs. However, a brisk easterly breeze made for a significant headwind in parts and was a hurdle for the riders who had to work hard to make good time to the turnaround.

Going under the hour and claiming 1st place was the self named fowl team of Drumstick & Chickenwing with a creditable time of 58:20 The 2nd place team of Derek Roberts and Tom  McCallum also just beat the hour mark.

The short course this week had only 1 team entered.
