Can't believe the other team riders were on heavy Hed clincher discs just to ride Specialized cotton clinchers

With the amount of rythm changes and climbs in this ITT, the gain with clinchers was very very marginal, moreover in the wet

Abby-Mae Parkinson of Servetto-Footon was on LW's front & rear at the British National TT Championships on 23rd June. The turn was about a mile from my crib (do rappers still say crib?)
