Road and TT nationals: October 2005

The road and TT nationals were held in Ashhurst this year. Near Palmerston North in the North Island. We did a reccie and I did one full-on effort on the course with the Power Tap on. You could tell straight away it was going to be a slow course. I couldnt even crack 40km/h for the 20 kms. We had a fair bit of time to go to gather some more form for the actual race.
On the day itself the conditions were pretty good. As usual, 2 times World age-group TT champ John Alabaster just ripped everyones legs off
