Tour of the Meldons MTT
« on: April 24, 2005, 04:00:00 PM »
Congratulations to all ERC riders who took part in what must be one of the biggest entries the club has ever had in an Open event.
It was brilliant that we had so many riders riding their first ever Open TT event and for some it was their first ever Time Trial.
The conditions on Sunday were pretty good and as you can see from the results quite a few riders recorded quite fast times.
Special thanks to the Ken Whitson for organising the event with such a huge field and his good wife for the excellent catering which she handled all alone.Thanks also to the Marshals who made it a very safe event for all. I hope those ERC riders that took part will also ride the McCulloch 10 Mile TT that the club is organising on 18 May 2005.
Club Riders can also prepare for that event by riding the Kirkliston TT series that starts on 4th May.

Kevin.

The Tour of the Meldons was only my third time trial but pre-race nerves faded when I saw what a fantastic setting had been chosen for this ERC event.
The start was at the top of a steep rise and I went off ninth. I dodged a couple of horse riders in the first undulating mile before reaching the A701. My new aero-bars helped a lot on the stretch to Romano Bridge but no matter how hard I "dug in" (as the marshalls urged me to do) I couldn't get near my minute man. After Romano Bridge the head-wind seemed worse and I caught an earlier rider. By the half-way point I felt that I was at the right pace to complete the course and at Lyne where the road turned back and up towards the Meldon hills I hit the first real climb on the course. Over a couple of cattle grids, past some picnickers and it was onto open moorland before the plummet through farms and over hump-back bridges  to the A703 at Eddleston. Then it was my turn to be overtaken, not by number 10 but by number 13. The finish was at the top of a cruel climb - not pleasant.
Later at the prize-giving I asked the winner, Hugh Jamieson why he was ten minutes faster than me. He described his training programme, beginning in November with over 14 hours of base miles a week followed by a training camp abroad and intense one hour turbo session almost daily in the lead up to the season start. He didn't think to ask why I was ten minutes slower than him.
I was pleased with my time, had a great day out and would recommend it to anyone who wanted to give time-trialling a go.
