Weekend Racing

It’s been a good weekend on the time trialling scene!

Saturday 2nd – Wrekinsport Hilly 18
On Saturday I travelled down to Bridgnorth to compete in the Wrekinsport Hilly 18mile TT.

One hour before my start time I began drinking my Herbalife Prepare. 40minutes to go I got on to my turbo and began my warm up, constantly sipping my Herbalife drink. The prepare really helped, as it gave me the boost needed before my race. After raising my heart rate towards the end of my warm up I had a good feeling about the race. My legs felt good, the weather was great, warm…ish, dry but with a bit of a head wind for the first 9mile. 15 minutes until my start I got off the turbo changed my wheels helmet on and I started to make my way down to the start.

The race went well with the first half being hard with the headwind and hills. But once I turned at the 9mile mark it was time to fly! With a nice tailwind and a few nice downhills I was flying. Then with approximately 3mile to go I made the final sharp left turn at the roundabout, and it was time to head up the hardest hill of the race…the HERMITAGE! I felt strong going up and was spurred on by my Dad and being able to see my 4minute man. I began to hunt him down passing him just before the top. When I reached the top I knew it was time to wind it up, with a 2mile down hill back to the finish. Running out of gears on the downhill I felt confident of a good time. I got to the finish whilst being cheered on by my mum, I was glad the pain had ended.

After the race I got back on the turbo for my cool down and Herbalife Rebuild Endurance shake. After finishing this I went inside to see my results. I finished 18th/70riders, and 1st junior by over 4minutes. I had also improved by 3minutes over last years time!! Happy days.

When I got home and had my tea. My legs felt quite achey, so before bed I had a Herbalife Restore capsule to help reduce muscle inflammation and by the morning my legs felt nearly as good as new!

Sunday 3rd – 2-up TT

On Sunday it was a 10 mile 2up TT where I was competing with a fellow club mate. We both began our warm ups I was drinking my Herbalife Prepare to give me another boost. With 16 teams racing we both new it was going to be hard to win.

We made our way to the start. 10seconds to go and I knew we were one good ride away from our first victory of the year. We flew out of the blocks averaging 28mile an hour for the first 2mile. We were changing every 45seconds to 1minute to spread the effort evenly. We hunted down our two minute men and caught them within 5miles. With 4mile to go we got back on to the main road, we were steaming along. We turned at the roundabout with 1mile to go, at our max, my legs were beginning to die but I dug deep to keep the pace up.

When we got back to the HQ i drank my Herbalife Rebuild shake, and headed to the results table to find out how we got on. We WON! With our closest challenge over 30seconds behind!
