Rutland at the Sheffrec 10 mile TT – May 2010
Marc Mallendar and Nick Latimer flew the flag for Rutland at the
Sheffrec 10 mile TT on the Hatfield Woodhouse course. Marc put in a
great ride to finish 2nd with a 21.29, and Nick sneeked into the top 10
with a new pb, 22.33 in 9th place. The hot temperatures made it a
sweaty affair, but compared to the Yorkshire Championships a few weeks ago which took place in 5 degrees and 30mph winds, the conditions were excellent. Nick was riding for the first time on a TT bike, with a disc wheel. While this undoubtedly shaved seconds off his time, Marc pointed out that the most important thing is that they “sound fast”.
As an aside, it should be noted that Marc, Nick and Nick’s Mrs. were the
envy of the other clubs due to their brand new Rutland CC t-shirts –
Well done guys and thanks to Nick for the report !!!
yep top ride Nick on a bloody hot day. Spitting feathers at finish.
