The Welsh Open 10 M TT Championship

The Welsh Open 10M TT was promoted by Pontypool RCC on Sunday 14th August on the R10?17 Course between Abergavenny and Raglan.  On a dry day with only light winds two Acme Wheelers members we on the start line.  Gary Flower gained his second Club Championship of the season with a very impressive 22:01 on the day. Gary was not particularly happy with his time, his goal was to go sub-21:45, as it fell in the middle of his training for an up-coming Ironman event.  Gary had put in a big training session the day before and this was still in his legs.  Nevertheless, it’s congratulations to Gary on this 10M Club Championship.

Nadine Cannon put herself into the elite of Welsh women time trialists with her efforts.  Again disappointed with her time of 24:14 Nadine felt that she had given everything she could, and at some points thought she might have been able to run faster – a la Chris Froome.  Her time put her in 7th place overall in the Ladies Event and, if we take out the visitors from over Offa’s Dyke, sets her as one of the top 3 or 4 Welsh Ladies. A very impressive season which gets better and better.
