January 2018 Team Time Trial

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.

Champion Systems Kit

We love our Emirates Road Cycling Club team kit and think the just released 2018 design, looks fantastic.  So good that we had a unanimous committee vote recently on its look and performance, almost unheard of.  In the picture below the black-waisted jersey is the race kit and is reserved for those competing in race events.  The Red waist jersey on the right is the new normal ERCC kit for 2018.
