A warm muggy night lay install for the riders participating in Round six of the New Forest CC 10 series on the P128 TT course on Tuesday night. The course starts at Copythorne before heading through Cadnam, Netley Marsh and through Copythorne again to complete the 10 mile course. Paul Lockyer further enhanced his advantage over the NFCC riders by blazing around in a remarkable time of 21:09. Antony Green is soon becoming Paul’s de facto challenger and was thrilled to have held Paul to less than a minute’s gain in 21:55. “I was hoping to get inside a minute of Paul, so am thrilled to be only 42 seconds behind him, there’s still loads of work to do, I’ll keep pushing” Antony commented after the event. NFCC newcomer Andy Postlewaite is quickly making a name for himself by grabbing a fantastic top three finish in 22:37. Special mention goes to Justin Priest who knocked a massive two minutes off his own personal best in 23:03. Justin has been slicing huge chunks of time off his PBs all year commented. “This is a course that I don’t really favour too much, so I was chuffed to be able to attain a PB.” Justin’s efforts were well rewarded as he was able to hold off recent UCI World Champs qualifier Stewart Ward by a mere two seconds in 23:05. Stuart Peckham and Andrew Hanley tied for sixth place in 23:38.
