Time Trial Report
Two Up Team Time Trial (TTT) Championship this Saturday at Kennedy Road
The 2 Up Team Time Trial Championship is being held this Saturday in 2 Heats. The weather forecast is for sunshine and ideal temperatures of 25C. This is perfect for a TTT. 2 Teams have already entered, but more riders are required. If you don’t have a partner you may ride the event solo. The traditional distance is 40 km. It is out to the 10 km mark, back to the start, then do another lap. The interval will be 2 minutes for this event. For those want to ride a shorter distance, there is a 20 km option. We have something for everyone. It’s a fun event; you can blame or more likely thank your teammate for your excellent time. It would be great if a couple of women’s teams were entered too, or a mixed team. This isn’t an elite event, it is for everyone of all abilities. Give it a try. If you want a partner, put that on the entry sheet, and if you are riding solo, or you are on a teamriding 20 km, put that on the entry sheet as well. If you know who you want as a partner and can't make contact, I will gladly connect you.
A volunteer is required for the turnaround for Heat 1. If you are available please let me know.

The Dan Lundenberg Race Team Report
The Eagles Race Team soared into racing this past weekend.
London Centennial Wheelers Time Trial
We had a choice between a very long TT - 46.8 - and a long enough TT - 25k in a lovely part of Ontario. Roads were smooth and mostly flat - though there were a few lumps in the road. Being right on Lake Erie, we had moments where we felt the wind particularly on the return. Kudos to the LCW club for a well-organized TT. It was great to see our teammate and sponsor - Anthony Howard - participate in what I think is his first TT.
Hill Climb Tonight
If you want to ride up the Bathurst Hill, the Hill Climb is on at 7:00 PM this evening. It is only 1.8 kilometres of massive exertion. Please use the entry sheet. The information is on the website.
