A smaller field of participants took to the P164 Boltons Bench course on Sunday as part of the extended New Forest CC 10 series. Damp humid roads made conditions more challenging than anticipated as a light Northerly wind just checked the riders speed. Julia Shaw led the way, riding for Drag2Zero recording a time of 23.13. Nick Buck was the fastest NFCC rider and nailed his first victory in Division 1 with a rapid time of 23.49 comfortably edging out 2014 Club Champion Stuart Peckham. Andrew Hanley made up the top three positions in Division 1. It was the first race this season where anyone other than Ben Boardman had secured victory. Nick Wright, making a late season debut came home first in Division 2 with a great ride of 25.13, Stephen Skinner and Mick Anglim made up the top three. Richard Parker was dominant in Division 3 in a time of 27.19 from Mark Jefferies and Peter Osborn.
