A record field of 75 entrants had signed up to ride Race 4 of the Cycle Closet TT at Outer Harbor. To increase the rider limit above 60 we seeded riders from slowest to fastest 'target average speed' time which early feedback indicates was quite popular with riders. The wind was slightly calmer than last race, but blowing the opposite direction to make a slight headwind finish - and humidity was lower this time around. Some people cracked new PB's in great conditions so there were smiles from many.
Other #paccnerdcommittee improvements to previous races this summer was the addition of louder 'start beeps' and the laptop showing rider start countdown (with rider name)!
Improvements to be made for the next event will be getting the start list (with accompanying start times) published on the web at the close off of sign-on at 7:15am to give everyone a greater surety of their exact start time. This requires riders to turn up before sign-on closes too...
Thanks to Pro4mance Endurance Sports Nutrition who suppled PACC plenty of bars and gels for riders to try out in race conditions.
