Just the right number at last weeks WGP 20k TT at Bones Lane – always good when you have people on different laps as it gives me something to do and made me appreciate more the assistance of the excellent Tim Coogan! In particular as he kept his stopwatch running to capture the last rider when I'd already stopped mine! Some close times with Martin and Fran tied, although Fran's unscheduled miss of the first turn to avoid a possible T-bone accident could have seen her chick him! Anyway, she still held on for quickest Lady whilst Rich Traynor backed up his quick bike time at the Duathlon by showing everyone the way to TT – great ride Rich. The CSP goes to Any Peel with an honorable mention to Keith Roberts with Roger Taylor's bigger differential (we've all seen it!) indicating that he'd been a bit slow starting. Thanks all for coming along – great fun to watch and hope the encouragement was appreciated?

Next up the WGP Hill TT on Sun 9 April. We will leave Kings around 8.30am and should be back 10.30/11.00am following the 25 mile ride which includes three timed hill sections. If anyone wants to come along for the ride only then thats also fine, as is joining me in the car to help with the timing?

Full results for this and all the other WGP events can be found on the club website – Members area WGP Results.

Saturday 29th April is when we will be running the Race Recce and I'll be asking all of you who can to come along and show the Race entrants around the cycle and run routes. If you can do one and not the other then that's fine – any help gratefully received. Cycle groups going out from around 9.00am onwards and you can choose which route you want to do, thanks in advance!

Train safe

On April 20th 2017 I will be joining the Mayor of Crawley's Sky Jump team leaping out of a plane at 10,000 feet raising money for local charities. If you'd like to donate then please follow the link;

Thanks for your support - see you when I land!
