Windy start to the Catalina Architecture & Design 2023 TT Season

The sun was shining for a great turn out for the first 10 mile time trial of the 2023 season.

Thirteen riders signed on to test themselves on the Cwm Rheidol rolling course. The riders were faced with a lovely tailwind to the Lovesgrove roundabout halfway point, before facing a strong headwind for the return miles to the finish line.
