HUUB Wattbike continues to make its mark on the track, competing against the world’s best track teams for ‘The People’s Republic of Derbados’ in a genre historically dominated by national squads.
At the National Track Championships in Manchester, the team took home a new record as well as a load of medals. John Archibald set a national record of 4-09.584 in the 4km Individual Pursuit qualifiers, clocking the second fastest time in history, smashing the time he set in Switzerland last month of 4-10.177, meaning he now holds the second and third fastest times in history. Dan Bigham qualified in second, and Jonny Wale in forth.
In the Individual Pursuit bronze and gold medal finals the team narrowly missed out on an IP 1-2-3 after Jonny Wale got disqualified after two false starts, but John and Dan still took home the gold and silver medals respectively.
HUUB Wattbike retained the Team Pursuit title they won at the 2017 National Champs. Even though Charlie was downgraded to a slower suit, the quartet also including Jonny Wale, Dan Bigham and John Archibald put in a pretty impressive performance to catch Team Inspired in the final 500m of the gold medal race.
Jonny Wale and Dan Bigham competed in the 1000m time trial and claimed the silver and bronze medals respectively.
Paratriathlete and para cyclist George Peasgood delivered the fastest C4 time, the category he will be competing in at the World Championships. This put him in fourth place overall in the Para 3000-4000m Pursuit (after the para cycling factoring) - not bad after less than 15 track sessions!
