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. The top three spots for the division one title could not be closer, and current leader Stuart Peckham has the slenderest of leads over James Bannister and Sasha Ring by one and three points respectively. Stuart stated that he was aware that James and Sasha were gunning for the coveted top spot and the narrowest of margins could be the deciding factor in who wins the championship
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.
