NFCC took on the P341 Thorney Hill 10 mile circuit on warm sultry Tuesday evening. The real sting in the tail of the course is the Braggers Lane climb at the end of the course, your average speed dwindles away as you approach the finishing line. There was no such trouble for 10 series leader Stuart Peckham who prevailed in a competitive time of 24:12. James Bannister held off an improving Adam Waggott to claim runners up spot.

Eliot Wilkes held off all challengers in the div 2, but Gaivin Robinson appears to have the division under control with a 18 point lead over tied for second, Richard Mason and Dan Mitchell. Paula Eardley continues to lead the way in the Ladies category with a decent 13 point lead over Clair Gronow and Tracy Mitchell.
Stuart Peckham rode the Fareham Wheelers 25 in a time of 57:45 for 32nd place. Bob Jolliffe rode the Newbury RC 10 in 27:27 and joint 60th place. Catherine Pascoe rode the Andover Wheelers 30 to claim an NFCC women’s Vet record of 1:30:34. Kevin King and Antony Green were both DNS for the same […]
