Please note: The unknown rider in blue has already been identified as HTRC’s Danny Posnett.

18th January, 2014 – Brantingham.

Predictably I said the groups would break up, but not, unfortunately, as much as they did. A cross wind kept riders in at the kerb; unavoidable along the main road stretch especially as there was a need to avoid the pools of water, but the stretch to the start finish area needed more care to avoid splitting because when a gap appeared here there was no getting back.

Group one started with Alex Dalton, Peter Fielding-Smith, Mark Walker, Paul Shepherd, Nick Rogers and Will Thomas, joined, once again, by Andy Faichney.

Only five riders in group two: Jamie Adams, Steve Macklin, Billy Robinson, Mark Dicconson and Mike Bradley.

In group three were Paul Kilvington, Mike Kilgour, Neil Dean, George Leighton, Matthew Johnson and Richard Dean.

Group four was Rob Hill, Shaun Nicholson, Victoria Hood, Barry Warren, Paul Noble and two others.

Group five was Chris Brown, Steve Green, James Quigley, Joseph Varga, Paddy Nolan and two others.

And lastly was a group six comprising Whitney Larkin, Callum Keenan, Gary Brearley, Mike Dale, John Quigley and Luke Quigley. A few young ones in this group which didn’t really work out.

It was difficult to keep track of the groups today which split or joined together during the session. Most of the groups started as they should, slower tempo for the first lap.

Group one set up a fast pace sustainable only by Alex Dalton and Pete Fielding Smith, breaking up on lap seven and taking two minutes from Mark and Paul before the end.

Groups three and four joined together on lap five, and Whitney and one other constituted group six after lap three.  Callum, a young schoolboy, rode around on his own the whole session, did very well and never gave up trying.

These training sessions help very much to get some race speed for the early races.  An opportunity here, perhaps, to find a partner to ride to ride Mike Kilgour’s 2-up team time trial on, I think, the 22 March, but you must, because it’s an open event, enter at the beginning of March. It’s very much like the training session in that you work with someone else, but only two of you. If you want to ride but need some help getting a partner then see me or Richard.

After last week’s long list of helpers they were in short supply today.  Thanks once more to those who did help: Terry Jackson, Mandy Dean, Neil Prendergast, Ray Robson and Joe Varga’s dad on the corners, and Sheila helping Richard and me. Hope to see you all again next week.
