Rob and Joe smash the Original Box Hill sportive

While the laser sailors were drifting around today for the Laser Barometer, Joe McLaughlin and Rob Wilder rode in the Original Box Hill sportive. Starting from Sandown race course out into the Surrey hills, West Sussex and back. They took in Leith hill, White Down and Box Hill with over 5200ft of climbing and 102 miles in total.The guys managed it in 7hours 10 mins!

PerhapsĀ a couple of Tamesis Velo rides next year if we can get theĀ interest.




    • Joe Mclaughlin

      In need of metal knee caps more like…
      Brutal last 30miles!

      • Kaan Yargici

        Couldn’t have been easy with Rob drafting you the whole way!

        • Joe Mclaughlin

          More like a dodgy old MKXIV trying to keep up with the transom of pristine passing cloud!

    Well done Rob and Joe. The Surrey hills are home to a regular Tamesis Laser event – the Laser Walk – organised and ‘hosted’ by Donald and Cherry Forbes. You must have got round the hills a lot quicker than we do, but then you probably didn’t spend so much time admiring the views, or enjoy a leisurely pub lunch! Impressive medals – we’ll have to get some for the Laser walkers.

  2. Rob Wilder

    It was a team effort! Legs have now recovered.. look forward to the next challenge.
