Racing 7 – April 2016. In the wheeltracks of Sir Bradley.

Claire Jessop once again flew the Otley CC time trial flag this weekend.  Claire raced in the Team Swift 10-mike TT on the same V718 course near Hull that Sir Bradley Wiggins rode May 2015 in the City Road Club (Hull) event in an attempt to break Alex Dowsett’s 2014 10-mile competition record of 17:20.

Both Sir Brad’s course record and Dowsett’s competition record were safe on the day as a full field of 150 riders faced similar conditions to last year’s City RC event.  Even though the sun shone and it stayed dry, the wind made for a tough day with most riders slower by roughly 90 seconds slower than the Good Friday 10 on thr same coyrse although Claire was only 13 seconds slider, finishing the Team Swift event in 25:54.
