A great turnout with 21 athletes tackling the new longer course at Nad Al Sheba. With the diversion of the track a single lap is now just greater than 9 km. The wind was the usual 20 kph from the NNW.
Well done to Ryan Christian for the fastest time. There will be separate league tables this year for ERCC members and ‘guests’.
The January 2018 edition of the ERCC Team Time Trial was held on Saturday 20th Jan. Conditions were reasonably good, if not a little cold (10 C) at the start for the ‘soft’ Dubai residents. The wind was the main challenge, a 15 kph breeze from the East.
The winners this time were Cycle Hub/Arla Protein, which was quite a surprise to the usual winners: Frontier Sports. This year promises to be another very competitive series.
Our own team the “Emirates Aces” of Chris Walker, Harald Drabs, Mick O’Keefe and Jon Williams also posted a very respectable time, well done to all competitors; we hope to see you all again at the next event on 24th February.
