Summer Time Trial – 1 August 2013

Mike Hilborne reports on Kerry’s win.

There were some notable firsts in this month's time trial. Julie and Kim discussing hair products before the start may not have been a first, but there was the time trial's debut as part of a cycle/run double, with Jerry using the four miles as part of his triathlon training. The warm evening also resulted in both of the Steves running or finishing without shirts.  The field was slightly depleted as some runners rested before the Sturminster Half at the weekend.

Tim set the early pace, being pursued by Paul, then Kerry, Steve H and Neil, with Neil making a welcome return to Thursday sessions. In hot pursuit were then Jeff, Phil and John who all started in unison, with Andy on their tail.

But where was Jerry? There was a fleeting thought that he had perhaps added the third dimension of the triathlon as well and taken a dip at the QE pool. However, a figure of whirring legs suddenly appeared from along Cowgrove, soon to be followed by a superbly executed transition, the bike dismounted on the concrete incline adjacent to the road and, quick as a flash he was off and running.  Steve W sped off a few minutes later.

The time trial 'officials' filled the intervening time before the athletes' return by enjoying the sun and considering alternative methods of handicapping that could be used. In due course Neil appeared entering the football club car park, only to be beaten for first place when Kerry appeared from behind the hedge next to clubhouse and finish line.  In succession the remainder of the field followed, with Jeff in third position.

Well done to everyone who took part. The usual run was made tougher by the warm evening temperature and everybody ran well.
