Well, no one else has posted on this so... The Good Friday 16km Unofficial Championships were held on April 14th. Tricky conditions, a noticeable NE wind blowing which helped up the slight incline at the top of the course but sapped your energy turning into it after putting in down Progress Drive. Last year, 93 riders went better than their age standard, this year it was 81 (both out of around 150). Despite the conditions, a new tandem record was set. Two a.bers (that I know of) rode: me and Gumby and we both improved on our maiden ride from last year, Gumby by a huge 1m03s and me by 34s. I rode inside my age standard by 21s. Gumby nearly halved his age standard deficit compared with last year. We both improved our overall placing as well, which is nice. So that's three ITTs for me inside my age standard. I'm starting to think that the first time wasn't a fluke. I had harboured a hope of going under 25 minutes but I think the wind took care of that! Still, a new PB for me and a new best average speed for an ITT - over 38kph. Will I reach 40kph? It seems so close yet so far.... All the results and a general report can be found at http://www.atta.asn.au Lots of pics at http://petermeyer.fotopic.net/c924200.html In particular, check out (DeF) http://petermeyer.fotopic.net/p28031529.html and (Gumby) http://petermeyer.fotopic.net/p28031531.html Nice arm warmers! I still have trouble getting comfortable on the aero bars (although it is getting better). I welcome any comments based on the picture above.
