I've been viewing these forums for some time and following confirmation I have won a place on the Prudential team for the London/Surrey 100 (via Bike Radar), thought it best I say hello. The forum has been very useful with cycling queries for me.

Been riding for a couple of years now, have a 2011 Felt F95 which I can't complain about at all. Just added some Shimano RS30 wheels, whilst these are heavy, they do feel 'smoother' or is it more aero than the out the box set.

I generally ride out of West London into the Chilterns and surrounding areas, done a fair few 50 milers but will have to up my game for 4th August!

If anybody knows where I can find out more details on racing at Hillingdon circuit I would be pleased to hear, their site seems pretty limited with information.

Thanks.

    Join a club, find out who races and ask them. Its the best way - best to go out on a few fast training rides with the faster riders before getting into racing.
