API Metro Open 25, Sat 14th June E2/25

Rob Royston, Dave Twin and 2nd claim member Mark Newton all made the long journey up to the Cambridgeshire, Suffolk borders to ride this fast course based on the A14 and A11. The weather was overcast with a stiff breeze coming from the North West which was a definite bonus on the way out but made the return leg hard going. Rob was the first of the trio to start and finished in a very respectable 56.23 (80th). Dave was next, but suffered a mechanical when his cassette lock nut came loose and the gears were trying lock up. Annoying as he was averaging 27.9mph at the time. Mark followed recording 53.05 (33rd), being the third fastest time he had recorded on this course. The overall winner was Matthew Smith, Team Velovelocity.co.uk in 48.34.
