Phew! What a scorcher 3 June 2010

Report and times from the Wimborne 10 time trial.

 

On what may well have been the hottest evening of the summer so far, the 10 mile time trial represented a significant challenge. Our 13 trialists were hugely grateful to those WACers (Craig, David, Elaine and Kim) who had come along to set up a water stage at the half-way point. Even with this opportunity to rehydrate the conditions were very tough. Thanks also to timekeepers Debbie and Teresa. Our times were as follows:

Jerry worked out the handicaps and as well as Celia and Bev not being given a fair handicap, Jerry was also a tad harsh on the middle pack as the last four to set off were the first four in (excluding Ross who retired injured).

 

Even in these hot and humid conditions there were some great performances, Jerry was first across the line and he recorded the fastest actual time of the night too. Its great to see Robin Hughes recovering his form, and the two Andys and Rich had particularly fine runs.

 

Once the run was over the splendid weather was enjoyed en masse in the garden of The Vine where those who were involved in the time trial were joined by WACers who had been for steady runs on the night. The Vine was packed and entertainment was provided by some local morris men.
