For the 3rd week running the Autumn series has been graced with excellent weather – that’s next week doomed then! Gavin Ashfield described the conditions as “favourable” except the bit going uphill to St Paul’s Warden. They were certainly good enough for Gavin to set the fastest time of this season’s two Hilly one-lappers with a 22:16. John Watson rode a new steed and recorded a time of 24:24 to edge Stuart Auger (PTT 24:43) and take 2nd place.
David Summerell has now ridden all 3 Autumn events but was half a minute or so off of his ride from 2 weeks prior.
Timekeeping and pushing off duties were by Steve Smith.
Next week sees the final event of the Autumn Series back on the Briercliffe 10 course. Sign-on by 08:45 for first man off at 09:01.
Hitchin Nomads event:
Gavin Ashfield 22:16; John Watson 24:24; David Summerell 28:39
