You couldn’t have asked for a better day to hold time trials. And compared to the weather of the previous weekend you would have to wonder if you were even in the same hemisphere. With a balmy 260C anticipated it proved to be a warm event and the finish line judges and recorder were blessed with the shade of a large tree to stand in.
Visitor Justin Weir started the proceeding as he was sharing a bike with Dad Nev. He was followed ten minutes later by the under 13s who were completing 8kms.
Next in the starting blocks was the under 15 and under 17’s who had to complete 16kms. For those who had chosen to complete the 40km course which included senior and master men 1 and 2 they were sent on their way before being followed for the 25km distance by the under 19s, senior women and the rest of the masters.
Tim Whitehouse checked all bikes for rollouts and time trial setups and stressed the importance of getting these done early before Club nationals in Hastings.
Thanks to all of the helpers on the day. Matthijs van Wagtendonk for the 25km turn point, Luuk van Wagtendonk for the 16km turn, Alison and Jason for the 8km and Glen Oroua marshalling, Darren Humphries for marshalling on Kaimatarau Corner, John Arbuckle for the 40km turn, Colin for holding on the start line and Rebecca for recording all the results.
