Boardman at record breaking best

 More club championship points were up for grabs on the P303/15 TT course on Tuesday night. The course starts on the road to Winkton from Ringwood before looping through Bransgore and heading towards Kingston near Crow. The riders met a gentle westerly breeze on the course on an otherwise warm and muggy evening. The main club protagonists within the club participated in the event which contributes to the club championship. Having had a week off to recover, Ben Boardman ensured that normal service was resumed with another dominant performance finishing in 33:57, and thus recording a new course record averaging 26.5 mph. Sacha Ring got within a minute of Ben in an impressive time of 34.47. Sacha commented afterwards that “Ben was just too strong tonight, I held a good pace and gave everything I had”. James Bannister had a minute over the fatigued Stewart Ward in 35:14 and 36:16 respectively. Stewart thought that last week’s victory had taken the edge off his performance and he just held off the rapidly finishing Graham Lenton by a single second. If the course had been another 100m long, Graham would have claimed a fine fifth place.
