Pretty inspiring TT results for those Brits while being restricted to a 72 GI/FG:
24:19 for 10 miles and 54:08 for 25.

A monthly TT series starting on restricted gearing to, as the Brits say, avoid "Easter Knees" might well be in the works for '18.
Nothing wrong with being able to produce a turn of speed when required even if endurance rides are the focus of a season.
