    Tragic! A true gentleman and a character missed. One thing about jim, we all as part of the cycling community all can share a tale or 2 about him that reflects his true colourful nature. RIP Jim! Never forgotten Stevie B
  3. Hi folks, A few of us in the past have been close to breaking this course record... YOu really need to have correct conditions and no hold ups at roundabout so yeah all has to go well for you. Suppose if you are going well and have the legs why not give it a bash. Quickest i managed in my small period in time trialing was a 14:58, that then was a float day. Just depends on how serious you take these confineds as most folks treat it as training. Over the years some fantastic riders have done some superb times in windy conditions. Hope it works out for the one's that are targeting a result they have been training for on this course. Push it to the limit till can taste the blood in the back of your throat, thats what darryl used to tell me when i was just beginning Good luck Stevie
  4. anytime Willie Well done Ben great effort. Stick with Willie all the way and im sure we will read more fantastic rides. The thing i enjoyed about the club confined on the west ferry is that you knew you would have several attempts at it and through time you learn and understand the course.Week by week you can make improvements on how to gauge the effort accordingly. Sadly with open events so far away you dont have that pleasure... I aint no expert but it as vital to understand the fast and slow bits in and out of the wind and the turns that will have all sorts of gravel and other obstacles to contend with. The more experienced guys that have been doing it for 10,15 + years are the guys you can take note on how they go about it. Stevie
