With all the relevant events now completed, the provisional * results for the BBAR competition are in. For the men’s BBAR the speed is the average of the speeds for the 50 miles, 100 miles and 12 hr events. For the women’s BBAR the 25 miles, 50 miles and 100 miles events are used.
2016 was the strongest showing from the Nomads for many years and most probably for ever.
In the men’s competition Julian Pegg smashed the Club 50 miles and 100 miles records on the way to the Club BBAR record. John Watson set a tremendous new Club 12 hr record, putting it “out of reach” according to some commentators. Nick Morgan put in a huge performance in his competition debut, finishing just inside the top half of the field of 134 competitors.
In the women’s competition with no previous Club record in the archive, Leanne Cutler established a new benchmark. She did it in great style – breaking the 25 miles, 50 miles and 100 miles records in the process.
The team competition uses the average of the individuals’ BBAR speeds. The men improved on last season’s 4th place, getting on the podium for 2016 and setting yet another Club record. That last place on the podium was closely fought with Hounslow & District Wheelers just 0.05mph short.
