Hitchin Nomads have more cause for celebration with the triumvirate of John Watson, Nick Hickman and Julian Pegg stepping on the podium of the 2015 Cycling Time Trials, British Best All Rounder team competition.
The BBAR competition is the ‘Blue Riband’ of long distance time trialling with riders looking to place the fastest average speed from rides at 50 miles, 100 miles and over 12 hours. With Hickman setting the bar high in 2014, Club Captain Watson and new recruit Julian Pegg have formed a highly consistent team.
John Watson’s times saw him record 1h 57m 52s for 50 miles, 4h 02m 36s for 100 miles and a staggering 260 miles for the 12 hour.
Julian Pegg is one place behind John in the national rankings by virtue of 1h 54m 17s for the 50, 4h 05m 07s for 100 miles and 245 miles for the 12 hour.
Nick Hickman’s fine 12 hour TT performance of 243 miles helped to cement his and the team’s efforts, therefore adding to his 2h 01m 15s 50 mile time and 4h 19m 36s 100.
The team have a cumulative average speed for 1,098 miles of 23.46 mph. Super impressive.
