Round three of the NCTC Club TT league at Bottisham saw another Mustang emerging from the virtual world, an appearance from a UCI Hour Record holder, the introduction of an intermediate time check, and a blistering winning time in very cold and windy conditions.
Jordan Black was fastest on the day with a time of 21:08, finishing over a minute ahead of the rest, with Charlotte Smith fastest lady with a dominant time of 25:38. Rob Speers was the fastest man on a road bike in 24:22, with Dominic Cordner only 8 seconds behind. Judy Brown continued her good form, finishing as the fastest lady on a road bike in 27:22, with Kate Young second fastest in 29:54.
For the newcomer competition, James Canham, building his hard man reputation by eschewing long sleeves and gloves, continued his winning run and was the fastest man in 26:20. Special mentions here to NCTC Mustang Arlando Thompson for his first ever real-world TT, and new member Rob Moon riding his first TT for the club. Kate Young was also the fastest lady newcomer with an excellent ride, breaking the 20 mph barrier in her first ever TT, and Bethany Broughton was close behind in 31:05.
Thanks to Kerry Louise Brennand and Ken Parsons for time keeping and Andrew Hammond and Robert Boyle for marshalling at the turn. Rob Boyle also did an intermediate time check at the turn (some interesting splits in the tables below). Matt Short spent his evening standing in the cold taking some great pictures of us.
Final mention goes to Wayne Harrod who raced with us on Wednesday. Wayne is a local rider with Flatlandria CC and has done some amazing things on a bike, including being a multiple Invictus Games medallist and current UCI Hour Record holder. Wayne’s latest mission on the bike is to raise funds for Diabetes UK: https://cycle.diabetes.org.uk/fundraising/wayne601.
