After the sunny weekend, there was a bit of a chill in the air for the evening 25. Rain looked possible, but didn’t fall though there was a very stiff mostly helpful wind. Some sections of the course were very fast, with (for me) a few scary moments with gusts on the swooping sections. Traffic lights on the course played havoc with the results; a few of us also suffering the herd of cows for a stop, only to be stopped by the lights further on. Roger did his very best to cater for time lost, though if you only ended up being slowed that didn’t count!
In the end there were some very fast times and at least one PB for Catherine Pascoe. Paul Lockyer managed possibly the first NFCC sub 55 ride on a club course, taking over a minute and a half of his time for last year. Ben Boardman came back to stretch his legs and Eliot Chilton did a good ride on a road bike.
