This weekend saw two of our TT boys in action in the New Forest.
Sotonia 10 mile Time Trial in the New forest on a warm morning with the usual cows and horses to avoid made for a great race. Julian Lockwood and Paul Jones were off just after 9.00am on the rolling forest course which started in Lyndhurst. First part of the race saw riders battle into a headwind with some sharp climbs to blast up and keep the average speed high. Paul Jones had a strong race and came home in second place just 9 seconds off the win. Riding his Specialized S-Works Shiv with Roval disc wheel he certainly looked fast as he went past our camera man, and as it worked out he was on a flyer!
Team mate Julian Lockwood loves racing Road and TT's and also looked very fast on his Argon 18 E117 TT bike, always up for a battle and today was no different, Julian took 7th place. Two riders in the top 10 will do very nicely!
Julian gives us a race report.
Paul Jones and myself competed in the Sotonia 10m TT STTC in the New Forest this morning, Paul did a rapid 21.50 for 2nd place with myself clocking a 23.03 for 7th...It’s a lumpy and challenging course and I was more than happy with my time/power as I am building up to the National 10m TT Champs at the end of August. It's a magical place to ride as you are in a stunning area with great roads. 2019 has produced some great team results and feel proud to be wearing our team colours.
