Race Report – 24 January 2023 ACM WIZwireless Individual Time Trial Champs
A hardcore of 19 riders turned out for the annual time trial champs. Held again up the Whangaehou Valley road. The evening was overcast and gloomy with a brisk and persistent nor’easterly breeze that did the riders little favour.
The valley road is an undulating course, 20kms out and 20kms back. Because of the local topography with its hills, gullys and valleys the wind often does the unexpected and is rarely consistent or overly helpful to those wanting a helping hand.
Congratulations to all the riders who turned out to race and congratulations to Tom McCallum for pulling off the quickest time
