>Hillingdon, Tuesday, Race #3


A lovely night in Sunny Hillingdon for the third (my second) of the ‘Summer Series’. The start was delayed a little by an accident in the youths’ race, so we knew the 4th cat race would be short and probably fast.

In fact it was the fastest race that I’ve ridden there and finished in the bunch. I never hit the front and the E123 only caught and passed us once.

Race stats: Race distance: 14.37 miles, time: 33:41 (25.6mph average speed). 37 out of 43. Top speed: 31.2mph. Fastest mile: 2:14 (26.9mph – mile 14), slowest mile: 2:25 (24.8mph – mile 9). Average HR: 159bpm, maximum HR: 175bpm. WinnerDan Maslin (Hillingdon Slipstreamers)
