Paul Brownless' 25 mile Time Trial - The race was supposed to be held on the course C25/27 starting at Frithville going through Keal Cotes and Revesby then returning to Frithville however, due to roadworks in Stickney that course had to be abandoned. The alternative route was the C25/1 which also started at Frithville then Revesby through Mareham le Fen, Tunby, New York and the back to Frithville. This course was used a few years ago and contested the national 25 TT event.

Weather on the day was very favourable for a good time with light North-westerly winds of 2 to 4 mph and a temperature of between 13 to 19 degrees.

As my start time of 9:53am drew ever closer I warmed up and made my way to the start. Once underway, I settled into a good rhythm to hold an average speed of 25.2mph. Until I reached Revesby where there was a slight false flat which robbed me of 1mph on average then seemed to continue through Mareham and subsequently passed by number 55 (Julian Ramsbottom). However, when I reached the Tunby turn I was able to increase my pace to almost 27mph along the 6 mile straight through New York and Goates Bridge. A left turn beside some very large dykes would bring us to the finish.

After a well paced and judged ride I averaged a speed of 25.5mph for the circuit which in theory suggests a sub-hour ride? But no, the course length according to my GPS logged a distance of 25.6 miles giving me a finishing time of 1:00:15. Yet another personal best time but still not quite cracked the hour.
