FCA Midweek Series – Event 22 – 1 Mile Sprint

Report from north of the border by Paul Lawson.

The final FCA evening event of the season was run off in fine weather with no wind to hinder the riders on a quiet B road in Fife. Having never ridden a 1 mile TT before I was unsure of what sort of time could be accomplished but my hope of covering the distance in 2 mins (30mph average) was not too far wide of the mark. I recorded a 2-03 with the winner clocking 1-51. Reviewing the data from my Garmin though the statistic I was most pleased with was 0 to 31.6 mph in 6 seconds. Although staying at that speed was perhaps a little harder than for those on TT bikes and disk wheels my WVCC powered Bianchi road bike was probably quicker off the line.

The only bad news up here is that a landslide on the Crow Road has caused the cancellation of the Tour of the Campsies TT that I was due to ride on Sunday.

Your not going to hill climb over that son...

As a club, we’d like to wish Andrew Simpson @simmo_on_sport all the best for the future, with a heartfelt thanks for supporting WVCC all these years....
