VTTA Open TT April 2018 – K48/10

The third Open TT of my 2018 season took place last weekend. Hosted by the VTTA, it used the K48/10 circuit which I’d raced on a year ago in another Open TT. Definitely not a circuit to set a PB on, it’s lumpy and has two half-decent climbs to get over. The wind wasn’t hugely kind on the day either, a big tailwind on the way...

Rutland – Melton CiCLE Classic Photos

The Rutland – Melton CiCLE Classic is a race at 1.2 level, so a few rungs below the races above, but is one of the most important one-day races held in the UK each year....

Women’s Tour of Britain – Stage 2 – 8th June 2017

Today the riders were doing a big loop starting and finishing in Stoke on Trent. Big name riders such as multiple world champion...

This is my first season in the time trial world, I entered my first Open time trial a month or two ago, set a PB and came 47th of 71 riders on the day. This would be my second go at an Open time trial. The Open time trial is an event usually run by a local club for riders from anywhere to sign-up and ride....

Zwift Review – A New Way of Indoor Training

So what is Zwift? Well, traditionally Winter cycling saw people putting on layer after layer, braving the cold and wet on a club ride or having to resort to riding indoors on a turbo trainer. The latter was always dull, staring at the four walls out of your mind bored. Some people found relief in watching films whilst riding, I generally had to resort to...

Giro d’Italia Week 1 Review

So far we’ve had a varied week of racing with the shorter hilly stages proving to be exciting. A full run through is below. Giro d’Italia Stage 1 Stage 1 was the 17.6km Team Time Trial which was won by one of the favourites and gave Orica-Greenedge the Pink Jersey at this stage for the second year running. Simon Gerrans had the honour of wearing...
