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.

All the TT results can be found here.

We’re at Bottisham next week in another joint TT with CCC 18.30pm start. We only have 20 places so please email me before 8pm Sunday 15th Aug. Check your inboxes.

Another great evening for our last Ashley B TT of the season. Tonights honours go to both Martin Smith and Pete Foody, who both put in outstanding performances to clock a time of 20.29sec - 24.02mph, closely followed by Matt Hurles 20.41sec - 23.79mph and Jordan Black 20.51sec - 23.60mph.

It was great to see Jordan back after his spell on the sidelines. Hopefully he can recover quickly and take part in the National 10's.

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.

Many thanks to our friends from Haverhill, who have supported us over many years, it's always great to see them.

Many thanks to all the team tonight, Simon Plant, Denise Plant, Richard Drew and Richard Newell for all the great work to get the TT up and running.

Due to a dangerous road surface on the Bottisham 10mm TT course we have decided to cancel this weeks TT. We will review the course early next week to evaluate whether the chips have fully bedded so we can run the TT safely.

Club Rides will meet at Newmarket Leisure Centre from 8:45 for 9:00 departs on Saturday. Our intention is to run the usual Social, Club & Sporting Rides.

The guidelines on official club group cycling have been amended as of 19th July.

British Cycling Guidance

As you can see, the biggest single difference is obviously the amount of people who can ride together.

There are lots of positive reasons for smaller groups, including the obvious one of less people togther = less risk or transmission.

Riding in smaller groups is actually easier for ride leaders and also if you are a 6 it means you can have a socially distanced coffee togther, as opposed to say a group of 10 or more having to split up. However we will leave it to the ride guides to decide if they want to split the groups up

Please continue to follow all other Government guidance and please do not attend any club event if you are showing any signs of infection.
