Dom Hill wins the SCCU 100 and the Bec wins the Team prize.

26th July 2015

Dom Hill wins the SCCU 100  and the Bec wins the Team prize.

An excellent ride for the Bec at the SCCU 100 in challenging conditions, with all four riders placing in the top 20. Dom won with a time of 4:09:32 ahead of Rupert Robinson (Crawley Wheelers) and Rob Pelham (Lewes Wanders). With a strong club finish James (4:18:38) and Andrew's (4:33:10) times completed the team award.

Rider reaction:

Dom:

My 2nd half took 6mins longer than 1st. I found it hard to stay working hard with the distraction of all the water, but on the other hand pushing on was only way to stave off hypothermia. Felt not too bad yesterday pm but this am everything hurts! Happy with ride in circumstances, would like to have a crack at a fast 50 and 100 with my current form.

James:

I wasn't expecting to go particularly fast, mainly due to lack of training so I was really pleased with my time. Experience counted for a lot, my pacing worked perfectly and the support team handed me exactly what I needed. I was ready for the wind and rain, so it didn't slow me too much.

Keith:

My ride was ok, given my decision to ride my road wheels with clinchers as an "insurance policy". My second 50 was 10 mins slower than the first, probably as a result of the heavy rain.

Andrew:

Pleased with my ride, although it felt a bit brutal at times in the 2nd 50 trying to dodge the standing water of which there was a lot. No choice in places but to plough straight through them. I generally negative split and my legs felt wooden to start with, so even with the heavy rain my 2nd 50 was 1 minute faster then my 1st. After I'd finally got up to speed my average didn't fluctuate more then 0.1mph from 25m on! Only my 4th 100 and the first i think I've got right. PB possibly so fingers crossed I'll have got myself in the money on handicap.
