By Bob Jolliffe 01425 616525

THE early evening chill dissipated as the sunshine burst through the clouds just in time for the start of New Forest Cycling Club’s seven-mile time trial around Norley Wood and East Boldre.
With the home side’s aces otherwise engaged, victory went to GA Cycles’ Ray Claridge in a course personal best of 15min 34sec.
But New Forest CC’s Andrew Hanley, who said he is usually better at the longer distances, proved he is a force to be reckoned with over shorter tests by finishing in second place, exactly a minute behind Claridge.
Third went to Claridge’s teammate Richard Blake with 16-38, while second claim New Forest CC member Martin Beale (VC St Raphael) took fourth with 16-53.
The Forest’s Dan Mitchell was next with 17-34 followed by clubmates Rob Brinsden (17-45) and Richard Rajski (17-55).
Others (all NFCC): Gary Plumb 18-05, Phil Underwood 18-22, Jono Parker Davis 18-26, Chris Goddard 18-58, Phil Harris 18-59, Antony Moyle 19-15, Chris Mills 19-50, Peter Hawker 20-24, Peter and Carolyn Weaver (two-up team time trial) 20-54.
