I'll probably do both the Llandovery 30 was my first ever open TT last year and I think I did a 01:19:58 so im hoping to knock 10-12 minutes off that this year
if you were to take 12 min of 01;19;58 on the R30/5 it would put you in touch with course record
my best on there is 01;09;?
What is the Cr on that course anyway? Fairly sure Kieron has it
I did my club 30 at the end of last year and did a 01:11:10 which is probably a similar course
Fairly confident I can do under 01:10:00 anyway
No body seems to keep records these days , i know for certain John Pritchard held it in 1998, with a 1:08:31.
In 2000 , Paul Osbourne took that down to long 1:07:, from there , Martin sage ( J P`s son-in-law ) took it down to 1:07: 30 something in 2001. To put martins time in context , he was regularly riding 48`s down the bank at that time.
God im sounding old.
Well the 30 is over and I did a 1:09:18 nearly crashed in llangadog on the first lap after a lorry came around the corner, got stuck behind a car turning right in Llandovery and got massively held up in Llangadog on the last lap behind a 4x4 doing about 5mph trying to squeeze through a gap, I paced it badly and came back a bit too fresh but im still pretty pleased with my time as it got me 3rd place and it was an eventful ride to say the least
As for the course record Kieron Davies smashed it taking three and a half minutes off it taking it down to 1:03:30 something, what an incredible ride.
