Welwyn Hilly 31.7 Mile TT Report

The Nomads TT squad were in action again on Good Friday, competing in the gruelling 31.7 mile Welwyn Hilly TT which has a touch over 2000 ft of climbing. Nick Hickman, John Watson and James Gomm took to the start line in chilly and windy conditions.

James Gomm recorded a time of 1:26:31 despite an early gear malfunction which limited him to an 11-14 cassette, John Watson recorded 1:30:47 which is a great time considering John was on a standard road bike, and Nick recorded 1:40:40 despite having to stop and change a punctured inner tube at the top of Offley Hill.

The event was won by an in form Ashley Cox (CC Luton) who finished with 1:10:57 and a cushion of almost 5 minutes to the second place rider.
