New Forest Cycle Club ran the ever popular Boxing Day 10 mile Time Trial. The event is well supported by local riders as well as visiting riders who want to participate in an event to blow away some of the Christmas excesses. This year a rider from VC Glasgow South CC won the prize (if there was one) for furthest distance represented! A total of 40 individual riders (some in fancy dress) and three tandems took part on the P311 course from Ringwood to Sopley and back. The mild conditions being experienced this winter ensured that the riders were not frozen whilst waiting for the start times. The conditions also helped the oficials in this regard!
Matt Burden representing Severn RC set a blistering time considering the time of year and just held off Xavier Disley from RST/Aerocoach by nine seconds in 22:34 and 22:43 respectively to claim the £40 first prize. Simon Berogna from VC St Raphael made up the podium positions with a time of 23:10. Gary Lock was the fastest NFCC rider after his Ironman adventures this season in 24:41. Isobel Fletcher from VC Glasgow South in 29:56 prevailed over local rider Denise Playford representing Christchurch CC in 30:16
Stuart Peckham was second in 24:41 from Nick Wright in 27:15. Christopher and Tom Day won the tandem class in 27:25. The fancy dress winners were Simon Hall and Mary Corbett. All the officials from New Forest CC would like thank all the participants for supporting the event, and hope to see everyone again next season
Four NFCC riders were entered for the event. Bob Jolliffe, getting ready for the international Transplant Games next week where he is riding both road and TT events, was a bit disappointed with his 27:00 time. Sacha Ring was even more disappointed, having his second puncture in recent events due to a seemingly badly made […]

VC Venta riders filled the […]
