Amigo Steve Donaldson (with pink hair in photo!) recently rode three events at The World Transplant Games in Newcastle-on-Tyne, UK
I rode three events at the worlds.
2.20k team TT
3.30k road race
The TT’s were held on closed road on Newcastle quayside a 5k loop.
In the TT I managed to finish 8th , which I was quite pleased at.
In the team TT , it was the first time Justin Grace and Simon batch and myself had ridden together!! Justin and me quite experienced in TTT , simon never ridden one before. We actually worked really well together , with me hanging on for the last 2 laps. We were absolutely shocked to get a 3rd place and on the podium.
In the road race at Hetton Lyons Park in Sunderland, it was 17 laps of a slightly hilly circuit , managed to hang on for a few laps then the elastic band snapped , then we had a wee bunch of 5 working chasing the lead group of 6, we didn’t catch them.
In the final sprint I managed 2nd in our wee bunch, so 8th overall.
Quite a successful WTG.
