The picture with your Dad is the best! :thumb up: My father used to go to many of my races because he loved to watch me race. I miss that or should I say I miss him.

Thanks!

Have you specifically looked it up to see what it was? :D

He doesn't really like the fact I'm investing so much money, time, effort and health into it, but he's my biggest supporter :).

Happy New Year! I wish you to keep on rollin'! :)


To sum up my Time Trial National Championship title, I put together this video from the race day:

I sold my Spinergy Rev-X wheelset after the Time Trial Championship. It was a hard decision,
as it had taken me several years to get them, after numerous years of dreaming about them,
but I had rarely been using the front wheel and the rear one even less so.
Time for something new, I suppose.

Image

I had also decided to make my TT bike compatible with my new road bike, so I equipped it with
Dura Ace 7900 10-speed bar end shifters, 7801 10s chain and 7800 12-21 cassette - simply perfect
gear ratios for TT racing (12 to 21 teeth - all by a single tooth difference).

In 2014, I bought these Fulcrum Red Wind 50 mm Carbon Clinchers with alloy braking surface,
shod with Michelin Pro 3 Race tyres, as a replacement for my Spinergy Rev-X wheels and
mounted them on my Plasma 2, along with a 10-speed conversion.

However, even though they were very nice wheels, I had decided they are too shallow for TT
and too deep for road use, so I sold them on.

5/Jul/2014 - a long awaited National TT Championship race. As with most TT nationals,
except the last one, the hottest day of the year coincided with the day of the race,
so I've had to look for a cover.

Image

Last man starting. This time round with a bog standard road front wheel, as I've not been
able to get a TT-specific aero wheel since selling my Spinergy Rev-X's and Fulcrum Red Winds.

Image

Hammering it down to another championship title! Although the competition was fierce,
with the field getting faster each and every year and with me being significantly slower
than last year - I've still had what it takes to secure another top podium finish in my
favourite discipline.

Image

There you go: another year - another championship title. It makes up for having missed out
on the National Road Championship Race this year and gives me a momentum for the next season.

After several years of searching for a proper TT front wheel, I finally managed to find one
in September of 2014 - and it was no other than the fastest wheel on Earth - Reynolds RZR92.

Image

Amazing looking wheel (I gave it a nickname of Darth Vader), with light reflective stickers.

However, there was a slight "problem" with the wheel. With its 28 mm rim width, it was too
advanced for my Plasma 2 and therefore I've had no option other than to sell it :-(.
Truly heartbreaking.

Image Image

The search goes on...
