The sixth of the weekly 10 mile time trials took place on Saturday 23rd May where we are inviting VTTA members to enter the Newbury 10-and-a-bit mile time trial. Numbers were again fairly low this week - with lockdown restrictions reducing and sunny conditions covering most of the UK, it's not really much of a surprise. However, please do keep telling your VTTA members friends about the event.

This week, we were once again blessed with the company of 86-year-old Masters World Champion Derek Hodgins. Derek crossed the line with a plus of +8:46. Second place went to Tim Davies with a plus of +6:32 with Barry Pope taking the bronze in +6:24.

Amongst the ladies, it was regular rider Ros Young who took the honours with +4:41 with Jan Farmer taking the silver with -0:47.

Full results can be found on Zwiftpower (https://www.zwiftpower.com/events.php?zid=802091) and the official VTTA results are shown below.

We are running a standards league so the best standards achieved in the event will be noted over the course of the year. Derek Hodgins is now leading the men and the overall with a plus of +11:15 and Deb Lumb is leading the ladies with a plus of +5:47. Full league results are here: https://www.zwiftpower.com/league.php?id=324

A few points to note:

- Please make sure your name on Zwiftpower is exactly the same as your name on the VTTA database. Although we've got most of the names by manually finding them, we may well have missed some.

- Do not add anything after your name on Zwiftpower (teamnames can be left in brackets, but they must be in brackets)

- THIS IS JUST A BIT OF FUN. People are on different power sources, some of which are of varying accuracies. If you notice your result is seriously "out of kilter" from where it should be, then consider calibrating your equipment. Also, bear in mind as you ride more on Zwift you get to ride better bikes and wheels. Also, Zwift physics don't quite yet work like real physics, so some of the pluses may not be as they would be in real life.

See you next week and well done to all those who took part!
