Racing Finally Returns to the British Isle's: Guernsey VC Club Time Trials


Racing finally returns to the South this weekend with the Guernsey VC Club 10. Thought to be the first racing in the British Isle’s since the start of the Covid 19 lockdown measure’s since March 23rd, the Guernsey Velo Club will run 10 mile time trials on both Saturday & Sunday. The Cobo Bay course on the West Coast starts at the South end of the Bay and heads down the coast to Rocquaine Bay and then back up again to the finish at Albecq. Fairly flat the whole way, with a small rise around Albecq headland just after the start and dead turn at the halfway point. First rider off at 06:45 then 2minute intervals with fastest riders first in the interest of social distancing. Current course record is 19:55 held jointly by Seb Tremlett & James McLaughlin. Saturday’s race includes Guernsey Commonwealth Games riders, Jack English (pictured) & joint course record holder, Seb Tremlett, another games competitor James Roe rides on Sunday.
Guernsey Velo club treasurer Alex Margison told us..
We haven’t had any new cases of Covid on Guernsey for 28 days now, and there are no known cases in the Bailiwick currently, so we’re moving to Phase 4 of our lockdown exit strategy from midnight Friday/Saturday which includes the resumption of non-contact sports. All going well, Phase 5 is a maximum of 8 weeks away and will see the resumption of road racing, MTB racing & our hopefully Academy and Junior training & racing leagues, but I’m afraid travel restrictions won’t be lifted until Phase 6 so the opportunity for off-islanders to come over & race is limited!” Margison added “ I wont miss Zwift this weekend
