Islip Village Hall
We were warned of a storm brewing just before the start time.
It ended up just being a bit soggy.
The course, in comparison to yesterday, was tame.
Only 100m/330ft elevation in 20 miles as apposed to 600m/1800ft in 25 miles.
It was also fairly straightforward to navigate.
None of this detracted from the enjoyment however.
I caught my minute man, who was a seeded rider & one of the favourites, about halfway round.
So I knew I was in contention I just had to push through the pain of two SpoCo TTs in less than 24 hours.
I finished 2nd... again.
This time more comfortably 2nd around a minute behind the winner.
However it was close for 2nd place.
Maybe if I had just done this one?
Winner - Joe Perkins - Derby Uni CC - 42.59
2nd - David Fellows - SCC - 43.55
3rd - 43.59
4th - 44.04
