Hi all

Link here:

Popular early-morning event and definitely one of the most picturesque TT settings in the London region! 120 entries up for grabs - get your spot soon...

Remainers - price of entry frozen from last year. Leavers - prize values frozen from last year.

There's also a second event on 24th June, so I'll post here again a few days before entries open for that one.

Cheers, Nick

    I'm in for 10th June. So slow at the moment though, I fear it could be a humbling experience.

    Looking forward to this.
    See if I can tame the bonk and make it round in a respectable time on the road bike.....

    How long are you planning on riding for?! Do well to bonk in under 30 mins

    Flat out is flat out, be it 30s or 30min... Being measured is not my strong point

    You can get your pacing wrong in that time, not quite bonking but can make the second half pretty gruesome if you go out way too hard.

    My best times on that course were always obtained by going out "too hard". I reckoned that if I wasn't seeing stars by the time I arrived at Richmond Gate (in both directions) I hadn't gone hard enough up the climbs. You're never that far from the next recovery opportunity...
    Pannier, 120rpm.

    True, its a tough one from a pacing perspective. That last drag along roehampton and then up to the line is always longer than you anticipate though.

    I'm away for the first one! :(

    Hope I can get a slot in the second one on the 24th.

    New PB for me (but not an impressive one - under 22mph).

    Held too much back on the flatter sections as I set big PBs up every hill. Going to try and flatten out me effort a bit more for the next one.

    John Hale is a MONSTER! Won the road bike cat and the entire thing.
