The first round of the Club Turbo Championship (held on Friday 4/2) saw James Hopkins take an early lead in the competition after a storming ride over the 4000 metre event combined with a good time for his 1 km ride. His combined times for the two events (6 mins 35 secs) put him in a strong position in the competition over second place Tim Sales with Allan Hopkins around ten seconds behind Tim.
Despite the back of the group becoming occasionally detached from the rest, it was a very enjoyable ride in cold but sunny conditions. I have not attached Micks GPS profile and map of the ride to this report as it is a large file but you will be able to access it on our web site together with a copy of the ride report.
This coming Saturdays ride is at 9.30 from Reigate Hill and will be led by Gareth.
Six of us gathered at Reigate hill Car park in slight fog and fine drizzle, Mick, Xavier, Paul, Peter, Terry and myself. Numbers were down no doubt due to the Evans Trailbreak ride at Ockley. We set off over the bridge and on to Colley Hill and then turned right over the motorway bridge,then through Mogador and across Walton Heath Golf Course. After crossing the Dorking road we did the usual route up Tye Lane and towards the Car Park at Headley. We then did a sort of zig zag route across Headley Heath to Tumber Street and along to Langley Lane.
