JUST eight seconds separated New Forest CC’s current champion Gary Lock from clubmate Ben Boardman in the club’s third evening 10-mile time trial of the season.
Recently returned from training in Majorca, Lock clocked 23min 37sec on two laps of the tough Thorney Hill-Bransgore-Holmsley South circuit on a warm spring evening.
Boardman who has claimed the full 15 league points in the first two 10s, ended up with 14 this time around with his 23-45 ride.
Third place, with a sparkling 24-48 ride, went to 17-year-old newcomer Ali Rogers who knocked 55 seconds off his personal best, set the previous week.
James Bannister took fourth with 24-53 and 16-year-old Hugo Walters was fifth, eight seconds in arrears. No more than four seconds separated the next four places: Jonno Parker-Davis clocked 25-26 for sixth, Tony Rendall 25-27 (7th), Tom Butler 25-28 (8th) and Stuart Peckham 25-29 (9th).
Ride of the evening came from Tom Reid who at 14 years old clocked 27-15, hacked 39 seconds off his “personal” and finished in 17th place.
Verulam CC’s Martin Plumb, brother of New Forest stalwart Gary, recorded 25-37 for 10th after puncturing while warming up.
Others (NFCC unless stated): Josh Green 26-15 (PB by 1sec), Sacha Ring 26-16, Pete Wilson (Bournemouth Arrow CC) 26-30, Rob Brinsdon 26-36, Geri Robinson 26-39, Hugh Roper 26-47, Konnor Bracher-Walsh 27-18, Keith Bradfield and Nicholas Kearey tied on 27-20, Sean Williams 27-27, Dan Mitchell 27-29, Richard Rajski 27-36, Neil Stevenson 27-42, Julian Sheppard 28-00, Phil Underwood 28-08, Joe Phillips 28-13, Gerry Taylor (Cone-and-Try-It) 28-28, Chris Conrath 28-41, Geoff Weller 28-47, Phil Jones 29-49, Peter Weaver 29-37, Peter Norris 29-53, Chris Mills 29-59, Antony Moyle 30-20, Mark Jefferies 30-34, Peter Hawker 32-43, Chris Norris (juvenile) 34-24.
There is a discrepancy between the South DC and NFCC web sites. I’m hoping that the NFCC is more accurate and that the correct police forms have been submitted. Start time is 19:00, meet at Parc pale HQ and note that there are NO prior signing on facilities as Margaret is not available, just turn […]
