FAYE TAKES FIRST WIN OF THE SEASON

Faye Faber

fayefabercycleWightlink Offshore Race Team rider Faye Faber travelled to Romsey, near Southampton on Saturday for the Test Valley Time Trial Weekend.

The annual event is hosted by the Antelope Race Team and attracts riders from top teams and clubs from the region. The course for the day was the rolling P140 TT course, which is known to be a tough 10 miles due the strong crosswinds and heavy road surface.

The course meant that times on the day were slow for the distance and Faye also suffered an almost totally flat tyre as one of the valves was leaking and by the time she finished it was almost unrideable. Despite this she managed to take the win over some tough competition especially the ladies team from Southampton University who are well regarded as fast riders.
