Club 10s – Gents 2 up 27/04/2016

Hay-ho, the wind and the rain, and the hail and another three season day…

The first club TT of the season is always a bit of fun. Loads of early season anticipation, and an ideal time to ride a two-up time trial and ease yourself into the race of truth!

We were joined by Robbi Unwin this evening, who took some great shots which can be seen on his Flickr account at: https://www.flickr.com/photos/135132719@N07/sets/72157665323585914/

Lighthearted and eager to get going. I hope Derek is taking this seriously...

It looked like it might be a nice evening, and at the start line, pushing riders off, it didn’t look like it would change.

Geoff enjoyed he sunshine start, and disappeared quickly off the line. Is that a black cloud forming behind? Image courtesy of Robbi Unwin.
