On a morning best suited for staying in bed rather than cycling a 25 mile 3 up TT, a strong Sydenham team of the in form Mark Newton, Matt Miles and Nick Varley ventured out to Brenzett for the re-routed (due to Operation stack) KCA event on Q25/12. The rain was coming down hard and the cold was starting to bite as Team Sydenham made its way to the start line. Matt set a fast early pace and the trio soon found their rhythm, warmed up and settle down for a full on wet ride. They made good progress on the outward leg only slowing down to pass an ambulance dealing with the consequence of a “touching wheels” incident. Pushing for home from the turn with the wind in their faces, the threesome crossed the line together to finish in a time of 55.03 good enough for an excellent second place. The event was won in 54.08 by Neil Archibald, Gary Birch and Phil bull of VC Elan/Harry Perry Cycles.
