Time Trial

  Steve Monks

Another windy day greeted the riders for the 12km out and back time trial, but this year the wind was from the west to north west, making the outward leg mostly tail wind and the home leg mostly head wind.

Best time of the day went to Steve Monks, who, although not that fit, still managed 39.24kph. Next best time was Malcolm Hayes, who put in a great ride to average 38.74kph.

Sean Prins was the rider who got closest to his previous best, as no riders bettered their previous best in the conditions. Sean was only 3 seconds below his previous best time.

Danny Monaghan beat his age expected time by the most, 5 seconds ahead of Malcolm Hayes and 8 seconds ahead of Steve Monks.
