Summer Time Trial – 4 July 2013

Well yet another eventful time trial – but not for the right reasons I’m afraid!  It started on arrival when lots of hard working men were digging up the road directly outside the club to make it a little less uneven, especially for future time trials I believe – how good of Wimborne Council!  Second problem arose just as we were sending the last runners off, when I realised we were not using the most up-to-date times, despite the fact that some of you had improved by quite a few minutes from the times we were using – so sorry.  The trend continues. I then realised I had made a simple error in my calculations and had sent the majority of people off on the wrong handicaps – I’m sure anyone could have made the same mistake with such complicated numbers such as 5+/-2!!!  Personally, I wouldn’t let me anywhere near the time trial!!  Anyway back to the roadworks. The result was that once again we had to alter the route slightly. We sent the route across the grass next to the football pitch and out of the overgrown side gate in the corner of the field to join the road.  Thereafter, business was resumed as normal. This of course also meant coming back in through the somewhat obscured side gate.  While Steve officially crossed the line first, he graciously handed the win to Carl because he had overshot the gate and would have won it – what a gent.   Despite all of the errors, as listed above, I can confirm that the following times are accurate for the perfectly mapped out route across the football field, through the long grass and out of the tiny side gate, around Summer time trial; back through the gate, long grass and football pitch. Thank you all for your participation, patience and understanding.
