On 25th March, Tejvan Pettinger of Sri Chinmoy Cycling Team, finished in 2nd place in the Buxton Mountain Time Trial - a long standing event which is the 2nd round of the national RTTC classic time trial series. There was a high quality field with over 180 entrants. The course is quite hilly - climbing 1,100m over 33 miles. Pettinger has a good record in this event; on the four occassions of entering - he won in 2013 and finished 2nd on the other three occassions.
"I always enjoy this race because it is a good course. I've had a stop start winter with a few injuries and colds but I felt in quite good form and only a minute slower than last year. I did suffer on the last climb of the final lap though. It was a great day for cycling so afterwards I went and did some more training. I'm looking forward to next round after April break in New York."
