3rd April

The terrible weather ruined our Bryn Griffiths Memorial 25 mile Time Trial when just sixteen riders challenged the howling gale. Only fourteen of those finished on a day which saw professional riders like Geraint Thomas blown off the road in Belgium. Luckily, previous events had fared better so our riders were able to make a start to their TT season. In the Cardiff Ajax 10 mile event on 14th March, Dan Taylor recorded 23-33 for 14th place overall ; Dail Long finished with 24-57 and Ross Morgan, riding in his first ever open event, with a very pleasing 25-43. The following day saw our riders competing in the Port Talbot Wheelers 2-up 25 mile team event. The winners were professional riders, Matt Rowe, NFTO and Olympic rider Dani King, Wiggle-Honda in 57 mins 28 secs. Dan was again our best placed rider, finishing with partner Kevin Bartlemore in 1 hour 2 minutes and 4 seconds to claim 11th place overall. Steve Williams and Ross finished in 20th place with 1-05-57 beating Dai and Steve Bennett by just 1 second.
