BRCC F1B/25 TT 12/04/2015 – Review

Five Nomads took to the start line for the Beds Road CC 25 mile TT on the F1B/25 course. Riding were Leanne Cutler, James Spence, Nigel Wilson, James Gomm and second claim member Simon Doyle (representing Team Salesengine).

On the start line, the barometer was reading a finger numbing 4degC, and the strong southerly wind meant that the first 13 miles were a hard slog, meaning that it was not the quickest of days on the course.

The real winners of the day were Leanne and Nigel who both rode PB’s at 25 miles, with Leanne taking 4 minutes off her previous PB done on the same course last year. Leanne narrowly missed out on setting a new Nomads Vets Ladies record by 29 seconds, a record which she will surely break later in the season.

Thanks to our friends at Beds Road CC for putting on the event, which was very well marshalled.

The provisional quickest time (results pending) was by David McGaw of Cambridge CC who went round in an impressive 53:18.
