Well done to everyone who raced the NCTC open event today! It was a beautiful day to be racing, and it was lovely to see you all.

Special note goes to Kerry Louise Brennand, who won the women’s road bike category, with Judy Brown close behind in second, and Ros Blackmore in 4th. In second place in the men’s road bike category was Paul Maltby.

Sophie Lee carried on her very impressive season with another excellent performance in only her second 25 mi TT, finishing 3rd in the Open Women's Event, first in her category and a personal best time.

Forth place in the men's open event was Jordan Black who put up a very impressive performance as this was his first open TT back after injury, and with a cracking effort and grin on his face as ever, Mark Careless in 8th place.

Many, many thanks go to all of the volunteers who made this happen!

If you enjoyed today, look out for our next open event - planned to be late March 2022 on an all new course we have cooked up with CTT. Watch this space, we’ll keep you updated!

Prizes

NC&TC Open TT Co-ordinator - Matt Meek

I now have the provisional TT league tables done. With only one race left, prizes are still up for grabs, so if you have not yet entered the TT tomorrow, then you might want to read on...

In the men's overall table, Jordan Black is top on 492.8, with David Halliday sitting second on 488. @Simon Plant looks to be safe in 3rd place on 476 points, with Martin Smith 4th with 440.6.

In the men's road bike, Rob Speers has things wrapped up with 495.2 points. Andrew Hammond looks safe in second on 449.4 points. 3rd place could go to Robert Boyle (422.8 ), James Canham (418 ) or David Cheshire (417.8 ). I think James can take third with a second place finish tomorrow (47 points replacing his worst counting score of 40).

Men's newcomer (best five scores) looks to be going to James Canham (214) with Josh Arksey (206) and Arlando Thompson (200) still technically in it.

The ladies overall looks to be all wrapped up, Charlotte Smith has a perfect score of 500, with Sophie Lee second on 479 and Judy Brown 3rd on 462.8.

Judy Brown has a perfect score of 500 in the ladies road bike competition, Kerry Louise Brennand is second on 492.3 and Bethany Broughton is third on 447.

Kerry Louise Brennand has a perfect score of 250 in the ladies newcomer competition.

Don't forget there are also four prizes up for grabs tomorrow in the 25 - advanced entry now closed, but plenty of spaces to enter on the day.

Top lady of the night was Charlotte Smith with at time of 21.46sec - 22.60mph followed by Sophie Lee 21.58sec - 22.40mph. Both Charlotte and Sophie have been in great form this season and have had a great battle for top honours this year.

Another great evening of entertainment at our TT. The new legendary NCTC Tandem turned up at the start line, left the start line, rode off into the sunset for repairs, returned to the start line and started!!!!...and then went roaring round 2 laps of the Ashley B TT circuit under the power of chairman David Cheshire and front man Robert Boyle....truly the stuff of legends!!!

Great effort by everyone, with some cracking times, especially David Halliday who beat all the 2 ups on his own in a time of 40.15sec - 24.15mph for the 16.4mi. Many many thanks to all the helpers tonight Jo Bouttell, Andy Peacock, Andrew Hammond, Colin Robert Wilkinson and Alex from HCC, it's this support that makes these happen.

Brief report from Wednesday's TT at Bottisham...

On a quick evening, Jordan Black was fastest man overall in 21:11, with both David Halliday (21:19) and Simon Plant (21:48) breaking 22 minutes.

Charlotte Smith was fastest lady overall in 24:26 with Sophie Lee second in 25:52. Rob Speers was fastest man on a road bike (and 6th overall) with 23:17, and Kerry Louise Brennand was fastest ladies road bike in 27:02.

In the newcomer competition, James Canham was fastest male in 25:18, and Kerry Louise Brennand also fastest ladies newcomer.It was a night of many PBs. I know of PBs for Simon Plant, Rob Speers, Kerry Louise Brennand, Bethany Broughton, and Mark Careless. Mark knocking over a minute off his previous best. Let us know below if you managed to beat your best on Wednesday 👍.

Special mentions for NCTC members Denys Taylor, and Marion Denby, and Ely & District rider Martin Lewis riding their first TTs!

Big thanks to David Cheshire, Jackie Henley and Mark Gibbs for time keeping and marshalling. We've made it to round 10, so I will endeavour to get league tables posted over the next week. Ashley B next week. Solo TT or road bike 2-up (basically a chain gang... Andy Bathe 😉), one or two laps!

PS. One final mention for our esteemed Chairman David Cheshire who rode the course for an on-the-day risk assessment before the event, knocking 2 minutes off his best ever race effort. There are rumours he was on a TT bike with pointy hat. The force is strong in this one, and as the Jedi Master Yoda said "the dark side of the Force are they, easily they flow… If once you start down the dark path, forever will it dominate your destiny. Consume you, it will…"

We’re at Ashley next week. 1900 start. Check your inboxes.
