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.

*** New club record ***

On the 15th May 2021, at the ECCA Championship, Donna Hayman set a new club record for ladies vets 25 mile TT with a time of 1:08:07. Donna's record stood for around 90 minutes, as at the same event, Kerry Tate set a new mark of 59:36.

Four different lady members have held this record so far this year - it's competitive out there!

On the 26th May, 24 riders from NCTC took to the Bottisham “E33/10” 10 mile TT course for the second in our friendly inter-club series with Cambridge CC

Euan Tebbutt (CCC) was fasted on the night with a time of 21:58. Simon Plant was the fastest for NCTC (and third overall) with a time of 22:22 (a PB by several minutes for Simon) with Martin Smith second in 23:13. Charlotte Smith was the fastest NCTC lady in 24:50, with Sophie Lee next in 26:22 (another PB!)

Rob Speers was fastest road bike overall in 23:33 (8th overall, finishing well ahead of many on TT bikes), with William Wilson second road bike overall in 25:01. Judy Brown was fastest lady road bike overall in 26:50, with Kerry Louise Brennand second NCTC road bike in 28:02

For the newcomers, James Canham, paying tribute to TT legend Marcin Bialoblocki in his CCC Sprandi kit, was fastest in 25:28, and Kerry Louise Brennand fastest lady newcomer.

Thank you to all from NCTC for making the effort to race, particularly those taking last minute places after riders dropped out. We had 24 riders out of the 42 who took part. Apologies to those who missed out, particularly since there was not a full field on the night. Jordan Black took the opportunity to go undercover at West Suffolk Wheelers and break one of their course records!

A bit thanks also to Will Burton from CCC for organising, and David Cheshire for being on hand at the start. Thanks also to Ken Parsons for looking out for the riders and getting some extra signs out!

Final mention to Owen Wilson, returning from an altitude training camp in the Peak District with a new TT position that was only approved as CTT-legal after appeal!
