Beacon K32/20 TT Club Handicap

Beacon K32/20 TT Club Handicap

This was my first 20 mile TT so I didn’t really know what to expect time wise and how to pace the race so I was a bit anxious heading to the course.

On top of the anxiousness I stupidly thought it was a good idea to play around with my TT setup a couple of hours before the race and looked to tighten up the brakes a little as they were spongy. This was a huge mistake!! I basically ruined them so had to use my Boardman Air instead.

Arriving at the course I had a little chat with the other Beacon members and discussed how hard I should be riding and what power I should be aiming to stick to for the race. After coming up with a range I picked up my number (3) and went for a short warm up. One thing I wasn’t sure about was having a bottle in the cage during the race, the 10 mile TT events i’ve done I haven’t really worried about water but as this was longer I thought it might have been a good idea to have one.

With the race starting at 7pm I lined up ready to start, the weather was beautiful you couldn’t have asked for a better evening to race. I patiently waited for my turn to go off and it soon came around being 3rd man off. It felt a bit different riding a TT on my road bike but as soon as I started off I could tell I was going to enjoy it, the bike felt absolutely amazing and I don’t regret taking it at all, it performed brilliantly and I felt it had the perfect gearing for the race.

I did find it tough going mentally and there were points where I thought I had cooked it and gone out to fast once around the 10 mile mark I thought I was done and secondly around the 15 mile mark. I managed to catch site of my minute man a few times which really helped me dig deeper and keep going as it give me someone to aim for, I didn’t manage to catch him before the end but really happy I managed to close the gap to be a visible amount.

I was passed by Jessica Rhodes-Jones who is our TT club captain and a absolutely brilliant TT rider winning plenty of events this year. She made it look so easy as she breezed pass, there was me breathing heavily and suffering and it was like she was skating on ice as she went passed it look so effortless!!

I managed to get through the 20miles and ended up with a overall time of 53:55 placing me 6th and just ahead of my minute man, after the handicap had been taken into account my time was 47.00 putting me in 8th overall. I’m really happy with the results it being my first 20mile TT and it now gives me something to aim for going forward.
