Gwynedd Cycle Association 16 mile Time Trial, Results 07.08.140

This was the first time that the Club had used this section of road for competition purposes in this format, and it proved to be yet another challenging course for all who took part. Warm and sunny conditions greeted the riders, with a bit of a coastal breeze, cross/head on the outward leg, and all agreed that the return leg didn’t feel the benefits from the breeze.

Marc Colclough’s superb time of 35 minutes and 15 seconds is the event and course record, for now.

The full results, including the inter clubs competition will be issued by Dylan in due course.

You can see that the distance has now been described as a “16”, as the accurate distance has been measured at 15.8 miles. Apologises for the mis-measurement on my part, and for messing up some riders pace schedules, it won’t happen again.

Thanks to everyone who rode, some of the riders having come a long way to compete, and to those folk who helped me out at the Energy Cycles Club GCA event.Thanks goes to Ian, Chris, and Mike for doing a sterling job of directing the riders round the turn at Llanaelhaearn, to Rob who was “pusher off” at the start, and to Ruth for ensuring you signed on and received the correct number. And last but not leased, Dylan Williams who checked my figures to ensure there were no blushes on my part. Thank you all!!

The next event, and final one of the GCA Series is Clwb Beicio Dwyfor’s 10 mile time trial at Llanystumdwy on 21st August. See you there…..
