Kentish Killer results
Waiting in the pen ready to start, it was bitterly cold, blowing a gale as it always does up at Brands hatch and it started snowing! An interesting introduction to my first KK! At least pushing up the hills generated some heat, although I was envious of those spinning past me with compact chainsets. It was sunny on the long drag up into the Ashdown forest before turning into a fierce headwind for the return.
By Ide hill, I had lost my patient and far more able pacer, Steve Searby. The feed station at the top of Ide hill had giant flapjacks, energy gels, bananas, teas, coffees, barrels of energy drink and friendly staff - in hindsight, perhaps I should have kept pedalling to get a gold! - oh well, next year :¬) There was also hot pasta and tea to feed everyone at the finish in the kentagon. Congratulations to Chris Dines and his GS Avanti team for organising such an excellent, well run event.
Cath Linney was fast as usual, although held up not long after the start with a puncture. A special mention also has to go to Jane Wiley (5th) and Vivien Brockwell - winning the over 60 female category.
