26th February 2011
First timetrail of the season was always going to be at the mercy of the weather and today was no different. Phil was riding for us as Cannondale had not affiliated with the CTT, myself and Phil rode to the HQ and the heavens opened and we got soaked. We dryed off a bit and and made our way to the start of the testing 10 mile time trial, I set off and guess what? It poured down! The return leg back up the old a3 was particularly painful and I finished in 12th place in 26:53. Phil started a bit later, also got wet and finished in an amazing 4th place in 24:53 behind Nick Bowdler and Phill Sykes, but in front of the very experienced testers of Simon Berogna & Patrick Brennan. Our team a3crg won the team prize and Phil came away with £25 prize money.
