Hi reader,

It's a quick one this week as I've been trying to get ready for Brighton Big Dog tomorrow and the rain has been playing havoc with today's plans!
We've 4 teams at the 6 hour endurance MTB race tomorrow - wish us luck and I'm sure there will be plenty of action shots and write-ups to follow! Plus the first outing of the new club gazebo!


Revolve 24 Update
There has been some confusion on the Revolve 24 events coming up at Brands Hatch next month - it's my fault so I'd like to clarify.
I've tidied up the info on the website for the 2 main events that members are taking part in:
1 - the 4-up Team Time Trial on the Saturday
2 - the 6 hour endurance race on the Sunday

Details are on each of the pages above but a quick summary:
The 4-up is free to enter for club members and is the last event in our inter-club TT series - it would be good to have a big turnout as it's likely we'll win the trophy back that we lost to 7oaks last year - but that could easily change over the next few weeks.
We currently have 5 teams with 2 people looking to make a 6th team.
DIscuss on the pages above if you're not yet involved and you'd like to be.
It's 4 laps of the legendary GP circuit at Brands Hatch in groups of 4 riders - 3rd rider across the line stops the clock for each team.

The 6 hour is down to individuals to form pairs and enter - it's a relay event. You can enter solo if you like - but I don't recommend it - I did that a few years ago and it's such hard work. It's more fun to tag your teammate and take some laps out.
We have 5 teams entered into this so far - the more the merrier and we have a 10% discount code - GSA10.

Members interested in doing a longer event could tackle the 12 or 24 hour if they feel like stretching their legs - the discount code above will also give 10% off.

Club Rides
Quick summary:
GSat rides out to Crouch with coffee in Eynsford.
G1 and 2 70 meandering miles to Marden.
G3 to Staplehurst
G4 rides to Hilden Golf.

Note that Chris Dines is oranising rotas for G2 and Graham Channon for G1 - they'll be publishing these soon!

Time Trials

This week we had the Thursday TT cancelled due to the bad weather - hopefully the remaining few will go ahead.
We've got Polhill this Thursday - the last Thursday of the season I think.
That's followed 2 days later by Grain, then the following Saturday 21 Hilly with the Saturday after that the final individual TT at the Tonbridge bypass.
2 weeks after that - the season finale 4up TTT at Brands!

Current standings look like this with Avanti in a clear lead:
GS Avanti - 258.0
Sevenoaks Tri-Club - 206.0
Sydenham Wheelers CC - 150.0

Kit
At this week's club meeting we had a visit from a local custom sock company - we're aiming to get some new club socks made up - short summer ones and long warmer ones made from alpaca wool! We'll be sending out designs and requests for sizing soon - stay tuned!

Have fun on 2 wheels this weekend!
