I took some photo's of our local TT10 event on Wednesday night.

One of our local talents came out for a ride.

It's not everyday that an amateur gets to race against an Olympic silver medalist, but it certainly encourages people to get involved in the sport.

    Ruth, I don't even know my censored from my elbow as you will have observed by now from reading my posts. :x

    So how did former dentist and Cornwall resident Wendy Houvenagel get on?

    Wendy won of course.

    She beat the nearest person by exactly a minute.

    Her time - 22:19

    Not bad considering both pics were taking during her ride.

    Kudos. Nice photos, too! Good panning technique on the second - about 1/250th?
    Aspire not to have more, but to be more.
  • I see your Olympic silver medallist on a local TT and raise you a Commonwealth Gold medalist and Star Trophy winner, and an Olympic and World Gold medalist and Premier Calender winner in the local cafe :wink:

    But seriously, excellent photos. I find it amazing just how close you are to the top riders in the British Peleton.

    All the shots I took that night were 1/160 - 1/200th

    No, I can't beat that - not in cycling anyway.

    I've had a WSBK champion & MotoGP rider ask to sit with us for a drink - & my wife didn't mind that he pinched her seat.

    mmmm, still not sure that beats an Olympic Gold Medalist.
