A nice sunny afternoon greeted the 27 riders on the only run out on this course of the year (VC Norwich run a few more later in the year). With last years’ outing on the course curtailed by the curse of the TTLs (*temporary traffic lights) it was good that a) the road was open and b) we didnt have to ride in winter gear.
The first club TT of the year proved good for a number of riders who got course PBs indicating they are ‘up for it’ this season. Charlie was on song again (even with a bit of hayfever) and took the usual honors with Simon Warren (Pedal Revolution) and Matt Ratcliffe (Iceni Velo) not too far behind. Best on handicap also with a PB was Mike Padfield. Fastest lady was Christine Cooke of Godric.
It was good to see club member Paul Bailey and club secretary David Carrier giving a helping hand. Thanks to the marshals, starters and timekeepers for making the event happen.
On the way home the course was blocked with a three car pile up (no-one seriously hurt) which would have stopped the race if it had happened an hour or so earlier.
Due to TTLs near Holt (now just removed) tomorrows race will be at Thursford.
