New Forest Cycling Club held a 25 mile TT on the revised P304 course in unpredictable weather conditions on Tuesday night. The normally well attended event had a limited field of participants due to the highly unpredictable weather that was being experienced in the region. Stewart Ward led the field home with a personal best on the course of 1:01:14 ahead of the improving Lyndon Thompson in 1:03:03.

Bob Dowling continued reap the rewards of a good winter’s training with a fine third place in 1:03:58, picking up the last Championship point on offer.
