Brands Hatch Q10/26 7/7/2016
The threatened roadworks didn't appear and conditions were good. This new Brands course is significantly harder so times are down from previous years. Sam struggled with tired legs after his awesome 6th overall at the Outlaw Half at the weekend. He said his average power was down 30 watts. Well he still won by over 20 seconds and set the 3rd fastest time ever on this course on Strava!
Chris had a great ride to come in second, with Tom and Andy helping 7OaksTri narrow the gap to GS Avanti in the team competition. Val continues her consistent form. Her aerodynamic position making her streak through the finish on the fast downhill. Gabi, Ella and Georgie continue to improve through their consistent effort in these time trials.
In the Inter Club Competition, GS Avanti lead with 308, 7OaksTri 288, Sydenham 233.
In the club competition, Sam's 5th scoring ride has taken him into the lead with 48 points. Andy's 6 best give him 45. Neil Mac and ATB haven't ridden recently so remain in 3rd and 4th respectively.
Val has a clear lead in the women. She is 9 ahead of Susan who has one less scoring ride. Gabi and Ella are tied in 3rd.
