Time Trial Season gets Underway in West Sussex!

Southdowns Bikes CC gets the time trialling season underway with their Sporting Classic event at Storrington, West Sussex on Sunday. The 34km sporting course is typical of early season racing, with hills and narrow, winding roads preferred to the drag strips of summer. Wouter Sybrandy (Team IG Sigma Sport) returns to racing after his accident at the Tour of Britain last September. The Dutchman crashed heavily on stage 8 fracturing his cheekbone & eye socket. He also incurred fractures to three lower vertebrae. Sybrandy holds the course record with 47:16 but the 27 year old is not the last man off. That privilege goes to Doug Dewey (In Gear QuickvIt Trainsharp RT) who will start two minutes behind Sybrandy. The seeded riders go off at the back of the field at two minute intervals and include Pete Tadros (In Gear Quickvit Trainsharp RT), Chris McNamara (Pedal Heaven), who along with Dewey will be warming up for the following weeks Perfs Pedal race. Roger Smith of the promoting club and Seb Ader (A3crg) could also be in with a shout. “Numbers are up on last year” says organiser Martin Richardson. HQ is Storrington village hall with the first rider off at 10:02.
