Another great West London VR Race on WahooRGT for you to catch up on… Results, report, standings and video. Next Wahoo RGT race Wednesday 5th July at 7.30pm UK Time
I managed to watch the broadcast late last night and you’d asked what I thought of it. Here goes!
Overall I’ve woke up this morning with a big grin on my face due to how the whole event is put together and the satisfaction I’ve had from being in it. I chose the race because it was under 10 mile and it had parallels with a 10 mile TT course I ride outdoor. I was not aware of the broadcast at the time of signing up but I have to say that just gives the event a huge extra dimension. It was so fun watching the race back, seeing how the race panned out and watching myself. The commentary was superb and I have to thank @West.London for making me feel welcome. It is people like Dave who help make RGT an excellent community. I’m sure it takes a lot of resources to produce a race but this is how an event should be. I will definitely ride more of these although I will miss the next due to being on holiday.
I know I’m not in the greatest of shape. I’ve had multiple illness interruptions from January so I’m maybe about 80% and my expectations were to complete and try and get under 30 minutes. I took your advice at the start and felt that was okay but others were off like a rocket. I wasn’t going to burn all my matches. I managed to get in a group for quite a while but my fatigue set in a little and I lost touch which then left me in no man’s land. I managed to keep going and complete under 30 minutes. I am in no way disappointed and thoroughly enjoyed the competitive experience that I haven’t had for a couple of years.
What was brilliant was that I could watch the broadcast and show my friends. It makes you feel part of something special which you don’t get with a just ride!
Thx for this James, glad you had fun, have a great holiday and look forward to seeing you on another WLVR Race soon.
