If you prefer to test yourself and take no advantage of the shielding of the peloton then the Huddersfield Star Wheelers time trial is an excellent opportunity to see if all that wet and cold training was worth it. Set on the romantically labelled V915 course, or to the more poetic, Sovereign – Hoylandswaine – Sovereign 10mile TT, this rolling time trial starts at the Sovereign public house on the A629 and heads south to the Hoylandswaine roundabout, circumnavigate this with the help of the marshals and then bury yourself on the return leg to the Sovereign. This discipline is all about measured pain. Go too hard too fast and you’ll pay later, and the best part is there is no one else to blame but yourself. The Time Trial really is the ‘race of truth’.
Huddersfield Star Wheelers are also proud to support development of junior and female racing and as such support parity in our prizes with the men’s race. Though all the races are mixed (no separate women’s or juniors races)
So keep your training focused this year by setting some goals early on, now’s the time to get the base miles in, but the summers for racing!
