Escaping the office for a week, Our web developer John traveled to Denmark for the UCI World Cycling Tour Time Trial Final held in Hobro on Thursday the 3rd of September having qualified to ride for Great Britain in this event earlier in the year at the Tour of Cambridgeshire. The course was on closed roads, 18km route for with quite a undulating and technical mid-section sandwiched between two long climbs.

The event was televised in Denmark and also streamed live on the internet via YouTube, much to the delight of Eddie and Alex back supporting in the office.

John was given the number 13 to ride with and having turned every reference of it upside down much to the bemusement of the Danish commissaires and completed the course in 27:59 good enough for 43rd place in his age group category of 19-34, and 252nd overall.

Johns age group was won in a time of 24:52 by Grégory Cassini of France.

Next year the final will be held in Perth, Australia with John hoping to qualify once again via the UK qualifying at the Tour of Cambridgeshire in June.
