Having spent the season mostly focused on tri events Tim Summerhayes had his second go at an open TT event on Sunday at the Hounslow and District Wheelers event on H25/8 (A31 Bentley, Hants). Tim again on a road bike, but this time with tri bars posted 1:00:53 but admitted to getting his pacing slightly wrong as he had too much left in the tank at the end. What would he have done otherwise...  The event was won by Nick Stagg (Hounslow Wheelers) in 54:45 nearly a minute clear of second placed Paul Mill (Team Edwardes-Elite Cycling) on 55:40.
Meanwhile, Michelle Blackmore and Mike Broadley were competing in The Langport Triathlon. Michelle finished in 1:26:10 (118th o/a) with Mike trailing by a considerable margin on 1:51:32 (273rd o/a). The 302 finishers had to cope with atrocious weather conditions with the warmest place being the water of the outdoor pool.
Quote from Peter Rogers (referring to my swim time): "If it was warmer IN the pool, no wonder you spent so long in there".
