Driving along Lady Gowrie drive to get to the start line of the third of PACC’s TT’s for the season was a windy affair. And the turn onto Lady Ruthven Drive resulted in an even stronger cross wind. But then, what would be an Outer Harbor TT without a bit of wind. At least it kept the temperature down, and it wasn’t raining (although we weren’t sure it would stay dry).
53 riders / teams rolled up to the start line. Three of PACC’s ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’ led the charge in order to get their rides over before making the dash to Gumeracha for the Cyclo Sportif. Then followed the tandems and the rest of the entourage.
Mark Fremantle is the one to beat this series, shaving 12 seconds off his January time to cross the line in 23:05, ahead of Nick Wood in 23:23. Gemma “no guts, no glory” Kernich must have been saving herself for the Sportif, being the fastest woman of the day, but 8 seconds behind her PB set in January. Meriel Custance and Terri Rhodes tied for second in 27:14.
The 30 second time delay posed problems for tandem riders Beau Wootton and Michael Hoile, who missed their start time as Michael had not returned from his sub-25 minute ride piloting Kieran Modra. Sorry Beau and Michael – we didn’t realise until we crunched the numbers at home.
Thanks again to Megan Davis, Di Lockwood, Will Lyons and Mark Robinson for your help this morning. Also, thanks to Kimberley and Victoria for your help in getting your team organised – you made our job a lot easier today.
Stay tuned for info on the March Time Trial.
