After disappointment due to the cancellation of the TT last week, this week Aron Kelly managed the win he’s been training for.
After giving up triathlon to focus on the bike, he’s hoping to have more success this year. His partner Sonia Laurie was also fastest female, with a strong field of 5 NFCC female riders.
20 riders tackled the reasonably fast P170, that has a hill top finish as a final test. The event saw a return to racing of James Bannister for second place, third was claimed by new rider Ollie Caudwell who was very pleased with his ride. The event was more disappointing for some: George Weller managed to fall off his bike at the start, fortunately with only a shipped chain; Alex Bennett managed to miss his start and had to wait 15 minutes to go off last; Catherine Pascoe’s rear wheel moved in the drop out and she rode the event with spokes clanging against the frame and a brake block rubbing; Stuart Peckham was looking forward to racing, but had to return his number when he realised he’d volunteered to marshal.
Next week sees a club event and also an interclub. We have volunteer marshals for the inter-club, but traditionally Sotonia provide these, so those volunteers may wish to ride and score points for the club.
Forget the hype of Wout Van Aert, the absence of Mathieu Van der Poel, the strength of Phillipe Gilbert and the bad form of Peter Sagan. From an idea 8 months ago, NFCC member Matt Cafferky (and Bill Mayes) tackled the event. Over to Matt in a fantastic report … here
A cold morning with another nagging wind from the east. The wind proved helpful on the leg back from Brockenhurst, but hindered on the first leg out. The course has a long climb, a couple of fast descents, but also a couple of short sharp ascents to keep upsetting the rhythm.
First home was Primera rider Paul Jones; like most, riding full TT spec and hoping the weather would warm up, with a very good 57.29. Only he and Andy Rivett (VC San Raphael) made it under the hour. First New Forest rider was Richard Parker, claiming another early season win, with Phil Jones second NFCC and Richard Mason third home rider.
Ray Claridge (TT bike) rode the Jubilee 42k in a time of 1.06.34 for 8th place. Stuart Peckham (Road bike) came 17th with a 1.12.56.
