Our first time trials for the season kick off this week. Time trials are an important part of our training structure as they allow you (and us!) to monitor your progress over the winter weeks/months to ensure you are continually developing and improving. It is important for you to attend every time trial during the year – without these measures, it is hard to know how your training is progressing.
