    Happy New Year to you all! How did I greet the New Year – taking part in a 10 mile TT in Ashford – course Q10/1.!

    It was a cold and dry day, but it was quite windy out on the course. I would think about 70 competitors took part and there seemed to be a lot of wine available as prizes – unfortunately, I didn’t get a bottle to take home to the long-suffering wife.

    Still a novice at this discipline so a lot of room for improvement – aims for 2019 are to get below 30 minutes for 10 miles – target time for my age is 28 mins and maybe break 1hr 20mins for 25 miles. So fingers crossed that i shall get somewhere close to my targets. Ive a Cannondale CAAD 8 and don’t propose to change to a specialized TT bike as I like the variety of trying different events. However, if you any any suggestions on how I can improve then all suggestions are gratefully received.

    My next TT isn’t until March, but before then I have the small matter of participating in HOTA next month!!

    Wishing you all a very Happy and enjoyable 2019………Jim
