Sunday 5 September saw the streets of Llandeilo, Carmarthenshire, busy with cyclists participating in the 2010 British Time Trial Championships. Cyclists from all over Britain came to compete, ranging from novices to Olympians.

SpringTide’s directors were present to cheer on the competitors, watching admiringly as they puffed their way up the long hill through the town. The Welsh weather was relatively kind, with only a few spots of rain falling on the challenging course.

The morning’s sessions were enjoyable to watch, but the main focus was on the afternoon’s Women’s Championship and Men’s Elite trials.

Emma Pooley sped to victory in the Women’s at an average of almost 27 mph over the challenging course. Behind her, Julia Shaw and Wendy Houvenagel came in Silver and Bronze positions, respectively.

The Men’s Elite was won convincingly by Bradley Wiggins who averaged an impressive 30 mph. His teammates Chris Froome and Geraint Thomas won Silver and Bronze, respectively.

SpringTide congratulates all the competitors on a superb day’s racing and the organiser, Gerry Oram of Team Grumpy, for making the event go so smoothly. For more details, pictures and results, visit the British Cycling website or see the BBC video coverage.
