New Forest CC hosted an open 10 mile TT on the super fast P415 course from Canford Heath to Bakers Arm roundabout and back. The number of entries exceeded Chris Jolliffe, the organiser’s expectations, and a high class field of 101 riders participated in the event on Sunday morning. The conditions did not lend themselves to fast times as the weather was humid and muggy, with a gentle North-Westerly …..ideal for swing bowling at Headingley!
Three riders broke the 20 minute, 30mph average barrier and first prize went to Graham Moir, representing Royal Navy & Royal Marines CA in a time of 19.41. Second place went to Gary Deighton from Primera Sports with 19.55, and Greg Parker (VC St Raphael) finished off the podium places in 19.58, collecting prize money of £50, £40 and £30 respectively.
To add a bit of spice to the Club 10 series, double points were available, and the NFCC riders were keen to put on a good show. Once again Stuart Peckham led the way for NFCC, ahead of Sasha Ring with a new PB and James Bannister in the top three. Alex Setchell smashed his PB by a mighty 3 minutes and 31 seconds. Other honourable mentions go to Gaivin Robinson, Phil Underwood, Phil Harris and Darren Ridge who also attained PBs.
Thanks go to the sponsors on the day – Bicycle Barn – Bournemouth Cycle Works and MLE/Batchbuild for their valuable contribution, and to the volunteers who helped with refreshments, marshalling, and time keeping. Organiser, Chris Jolliffe was thrilled with the success of the day, and will look to organise a similar event next year.
