Peckham holds Bannister off in push for title

 

 The P303 10 mile TT course provided a stiff challenge on a breezy Tuesday evening. The riders were faced with a direct head wind for the opening  half of the course from Ringwood to Sopley, and received little benefit as they turned and headed up to the finish at the Kingston Triangle. Claire Gronow put a minute into the other competitors in the ladies class, and a battle royale ensued for the runners up spot and Paula Eardley prevailed over Tracy Mitchell by a mere  5 seconds.

 The continuing struggle to win div 1 for the men’s offered little clarity with one event remaining, however Stuart Peckham edged closer to the title by closing out the win from James Bannister in second by a slender five seconds and John Heffernan a further second back.. The other protagonist for the title, Sasha Ring had his hopes dashed when picked up a puncture en route to the start and was unable to participate. Elliot Wilks continued his recent good form to edge Dan Mitchell into second place in div 2 on the day with a great time of 26:03. The 10 series will be decided with the last event on the 12 August taking on the popular P164 course starting from Boltons Bench, Lyndhurst at 6.30 pm.
