New Forest CC held the second Sunday morning events on the P337 course. The course starts at Goatspen near Burley and heads towards Brockenhurst, keeping left through Rhinefield, before taking another left towards the start on the A35. Sunday mornings conditions were not for the faint hearted as a stiff cold easterly, made the first leg of the course particularly testing for the competitors. A reduced field of 21 riders braved the temperatures, as New Forest CC member Ben Boardman again showed the form of two years ago by prevailing in fine time of 31:33. The first four riders finishing times were punctuated by minute intervals as Hugo Walters claimed second, Stuart Peckham third, and Graham Lenton a fine fourth after spending the winter on the turbo trainer. The men to beat however were once again Steve Whitewick and Julian Jenkinson on the rapid tandem roaring home in 29:39. For full results and time Trial programme visit the NFCC web site.
