New Forest CC used the last day of summer hold a TT on the ever popular P164 course from Boltons Bench to Beaulieu Road Station. The riders were treated to near perfect conditions as a warm gentle westerly breeze made conditions ideal. NFCC riders did not have their own way as the event was won by Andy Rivett representing VC ST Raphael in 22.52 ahead of Owen Harris (Soton Tri Club) in a sparkling 22.58. Despite losing time taking some evasive action to avoid a collision, Gary Allen (GA Cycles)recorded a very respectable 23.18, edging out Gary Ferrett (Hampshire RC) by a single second.
2014 Club Champion Stuart Peckham continued his domination of club riders with a fine time of 23.29, just shy of a course PB. Adam Waggott’s fine form continued as he dug deep to record a sub 24 minute time in 23.50. Mick Anglim returned a respectable time of 26.50 after successfully returning from the World Duathlon Championships in Spain, picking up a Silver medal representing GB.
