Easter Sunday saw the first of the 5 Interclub events between CC Ashwell, Beds Road CC, Icknield RC and The Nomads. The first event was hosted by Icknield RC and comprised of a 10 mile TT on the F15/10 course at Brogborough. Conditions were tough with cool temperatures and a strong Easterly wind which meant riding into a headwind for the longer 5.5 mile leg out.
The Nomads fielded a strong team with 13 riders taking to the start line, including James Spence and Steve Smith who made their 2014 TT débuts following injuries sustained from crashes earlier on in the year. First home for the Nomads was Ryan Witchell with a 22:47, second was Simon Doyle with 24:06 and rounding off the top three for the Nomads was Steve Robinson with 24:15.
The event was won by Beds Road CC’s Simon Norman with a 21:20, edging out CC Ashwell’s Justin Layne who recorded 21:35, with CC Ashwell’s Cameron Woolsey coming third with 21:55.
