Daviot 10TT 06/May/2015

With little else happening to interest me on the race calendar I took a trip north west toward Inverness to ride the Daviot 10 last Wednesday evening. First time on this course for me and this one is also the first of four in the Moray Firth CC mid-week series.

Conditions were dry but a chill North westerly wind was holding the temperature down. After an hour and a half driving through the Elgin rush-hour traffic toward Inverness a left turn on to the A9 took me towards Daviot village hall for the sign-on. With a number pinned on and mindful of the event notes warning of no parking near the start it was down the A9 for a wee bit to turn off away from the traffic and up towards the start past a large car park :roll: By up towards the start I do mean UP! A steep climb past the finish line for over a mile certainly gets the legs and lungs working and brings us to a plateau where the start line awaits. Once the countdown finishes the climbing soon resumes with the first mile of the TT course going upwards at around 6% then a short 2% drop to raise the cadence and speed. From there the next 7 miles are typical gently rolling roads found in any local TT course. By now we are at mile 8 and about to drop rapidly back down towards the start line plateau. A blast along the short flat section and the road drops away again for another mile - more sharply now and with right left corkscrew of turns that were made more interesting by the blustery wind buffeting deep section front wheels - before the finish line suddenly appears.
Rather than riding this one as a 10 it's more of a mix; a one mile hill climb followed by a 7 mile TT and a two mile descent. Lots of fun once you know what to expect and similar in many ways to the club 10 course we all know and, well, let's just leave it at know ;)
