Kapiti CC – 4 UP Team Trial – Tuesday 11th December 2018

The four-person team time trial format proved popular on Tuesday evening with fierce competition between the competing teams. Three very strong teams contested four laps of the Peka Peka circuit totalling 38.1km, the four-person women’s team competed over the two lap course with a two person vets team also racing over the two laps.

The three men’s teams all rode under the hour with Gary, Leon, Dave and Todd setting a fast time in 57.57 minutes averaging 39.6kph. Closely followed by Tristan, Harrison and Jonathan racing home in 59.04 after 4th rider Tony suffered a mishap at the start. Hot on their heels, Adrian, Greg, Phil and Richard recorded 59.15.

The very strong women’s team, Janice, Glynis, Georgie and Katie stormed around the 19.4km course in a very fast 31.22, this bodes well for the Hope Gibbons event next year.

Ever green veterans John Pratt and Des Batten rode an excellent time over the two laps in 33.32, outstanding effort from the duo.
