Middle Distance Start Times

Thursday, 25 August 2011

A late minute post, due to the internet konking out when I had all the start times available and I got round to thinking about writing.  The rest day was as advertised, slow start with pancakes for breakfast, a bit of a spin and a bit more playing round with bikes.

(We would like to suggest to the selectors that they must make sure every team has 1, preferably 2, riders with the bike mechanical capabilities of Alex and Steve - They have been invaluable to just about everyone of us!!)

OK, start times:

First start 10:00 (18:00 EST)

Steve 10.24

Melanie 10.34

Tom 10.37

Chris 10.41

Oscar 11.01;

Alex 11.02

Marc 11.37 

Most opted to go early because of heat, though in WOC only there is a red start group at the end. This means the top 10 elite riders start last, so fast times will come from this area. Courses have a spectator control 10-12 mins from the end.
