The TT series I am participating while I am here in England is put on by the Newmarket Cycling and Triathlon Club. It runs every Wednesday between April and August and the series rotates between 4 different courses so you get to repeat on all courses at least 1x during the season! I had never ridden the course that was run last nite and it was much harder than I had anticipated. For my 1st official TT of the year it was a tough one even tho it was only 8 miles long!
The scenery on the course was GORGEOUS. The lay out of it was what was tough for me personally. There were steep climbs (10% grade at time) that came right after having to slow down nearly to a stop to make very tight turns! And of course all the downhills where a rider like me can make up time all ended were interrupted by previously mentioned tight turns. So needless to say this was not an ideal course for me personally but I feel I handled it well, pushing myself to the point of almost vomiting :) and at the very least now I have a solid time to try to beat next time we take on this course!
