New Forest CC held the first in the popular 10 series on Tuesday night on the pan flat P311 course from Ringwood to Sopley and back. A gentle southerly wind just checked the 33 riders times heading out on the first half of the course, but most riders declared that they felt very little tail wind on the way back home. Ben Boardman continued his early season good form to win the maximum 15 points in the division 1 class in a time of 22:59, second was Sasha Ring in 23:39 and existing club champion Stuart Peckham completed the top three in 24:20. The division 2 points were awarded to Phil Underwood in 26:38, holding off Alex Setchell in 26:44 and Mick Anglim in 27:02, who just held onto third by 4 seconds from Richard Rajski and Phil Jones. Division 3’s top three were Bob Joliffe (29:37), Peter Hawker (30:49) and Chris Mills (31:10).
