Whitwell Hilly Circuit. Overcast, still and cool conditions greeted the 9 riders that gathered on the Whitwell/Codicote road for the final round of the Autumn TT series. The timekeeper was nowhere to be found but guessed the right direction to take in Codicote in the end to be there on time! Three Nomads clocked times in the 24s for the 9.2 mile circuit with Mark Desborough the fastest by 12 seconds while Nick Senechal pipped Nick Hickman into 2nd place by just 17 seconds. Lone PTT Tom Bishop set the fastest time of the morning with an excellent 23:02. Startline comedy was supplied by James Cornell who after not being able to engage his small chainring throughout the warmup managed to engage it with 4 secounds until his push off – cue frenzied spinning away from the line. Pictured is David Summerell approaching the finish to squeak inside 30 minutes, wondering if Saturday night had been such a good idea!
Timekeeping, pushing off and journalism was from Steve Smith.
