Today, on a very windy Sunday morning I raced in the Kettering Hilly 20 mile Time Trial. It was an enjoyable race and I improved on my time from last year by over a minute, which meant I came 8th. I felt more prepared for this race as I had taken the time to set up the bike and had a good session on the rollers before the start. It was certainly tough cycling into the wind so I was pleased with my improvement and place. Looking back on the photos, I noticed that I wasn’t quite as aerodynamic as I’d hoped. I have therefore decided to lower my handlebars for the next race to see if this makes any difference to my performance!!
