Mektrax Racing Report

A late one lap to go attack from Elliott allowed Philip and Taylor to sit comfortably in the pack forcing other teams to chase. In the final straight as Elliott was almost caught, Philip using one of his most impressive abilities immediately jumped and opened a huge gap on the field, rolling across the line in 1st place. Taylor followed Philips wheel but was just beaten at the line, finishing 3rd. Elliott managed to come in with an almost perfectly timed last lap flyer for 5th place.

2019 - 365 Day Charity Ride - Christopher Swan

 

Back in the day (last year) I used to think Sunday was a rest day, you can’t ride after a hard long day on Saturday. My legs were often still tired on Tuesday !!

Then on the 1st Jan 2019 with a slightly foggy head sitting on my trainer in a cold NY I decided it would be good to ride every day of the year for charity, specifically Prithipura Communities in Sri Lanka.

www.prithipura.org

218 days later I am surprised how the mind if not always the legs recover... most of the time.

The year to date statistics are 

14 270 km - can’t recommend the custom fit Passoni enough for this job.

80 842 m of climbing, which is really surprising
 

Average speed of 31.3 kph

Average 61.7 km/day

3 Chains

3 Sets of tyres (not that much actually)

 

I've lost 2kg in weight despite eating really quite a lot and the legs well they are simply always sore and pretty tired !! But the mind is very willing and wonders occasionally if I will ever stop. We will see on Jan 1st 2020

 

So far we have raised nearly $2000 for Prithipura Communities and all donations are very much appreciated, thanks to everyone for their support. You can donate through the link below… 147 days to go with a 22 000km target.

GH/Mektrax - Dubai Tuesday Ride 5.15am GH Marina Dubai

 

Five years ago Tom Egerton, Executive Chef at the famous Grosvenor House hotel (GH) in Duabi started a very early morning Tuesday ride with some friends. This was only made possible if both very early and it had to have a safety car.  This has been provided by GH for all this time. 

 

The ride has become one of the most popular in Dubai, fast even furious at times but always safe. 

This year Tom and his family decided it was time to move on and are currently at the start of an 8 month world tour. 

 

Mektrax is very proud to have assumed the organisation of the ride and to keep Tom’s GH ride going strong in Dubai.

Matteo Trentin - Dubai visit and ride with Café Peloton

 

We were all very privileged for the opportunity to ride with Matteo on his visit earlier in the year to Dubai. 

Undoubtedly our brief ride helped him to prepare for his Tour de France hilly 200km Stage 17 win from Pont de Gard. 

 

Fantastic to have ridden with such a spectacular athlete.
