Congratulations to George!
Congratulations to George, a junior member of the club. In his first regional 10 mile TT, at Hillingdon, he was the fastest in his age group and has qualified for the national 10 mile championship!
TT Plus Times
We recently had an enquiry about the 'Plus times' that we are publishing in our results. These are the difference between the VTTA standards for a rider of the same age as the competitor.
Donald, our TT secretary, has had trouble getting the formula used for this process, so the results currently shown in our articles and tables are in line with the 2012 system. He is planning an upgrade to the 2013 system.
2013 06 20 - Thursday Club Time Trials
A calm night for wind and 19 riders out with 11 club members.
Road Records Association
Thanks to Dick for his talk last week on the Road Records Association and what it does.
In checking the handbook (Dick has the club's copy), we found that Martyn and Steve Winter, members of the club (Martyn is still a member although out of the area these days), still hold the record for the Tandem 100 at 3hrs:20:45, set in 1990. They also held the 50 record at 1hr:32:40 from 1991, but the record was beaten by about 30 seconds in 1995.
(Congratulations also to Dick on his +1 :13 on the NHRC 10 mile TT recently in his first open event in 2 years. Nick Cosgreave also posted 24:48. The official results are not posted yet, the times were given to me by Dick who took them down from the board)

A good field of our own club riders tonight. Pity Simon got a tad lost.
Gareth's Race Report for May 2013
Thanks to Gareth for another great report on his road racing in May!
Next Special Topic Club Evening - Techno gyms
At the next topic-based Club night on 5th July, Dick will be bringing the club's Technogym trainer system. We have one volunteer for a fitness test. If you are interested in being the second volunteer, contact Bob.
It takes around 30 minutes and you will need your own bike (no front wheel) and a towel. No TT bars!
(Second place now gone - do come along to see what's involved and we might be able to arrange another session in the future)

12 out and dry weather, although some wind.
I got this through from Mel..
"I just thought I'd let you know that registration for 2boats (2nd-4th May 2014) has opened already. If people register by August it only costs £250 to take part.
Here's the link - http://www.2boats.org/2boats-cycle/
Would be great to have some of you along :o)
