Promoting club rider Harry Thompson wins rejuvenated annual hilly event. A strong entry from the veteran categories, with Alan Nicolson (Race Hub) leading the 40-49s and Roy Chamberlin (Team Corley) leading the 50-59s. The first lady was Yasmin Marks (Beeston CC). After a successful event we hope to build on this formula for future years with the possibility of other clubs linking up to create a local series of events with the same rules.
Because 5 riders rode on the wrong side of the road at T Junction right turn in Tilton on the Hill, we have no option but to disqualify them. As an organising club we have to follow CTT rules & therefore cannot advocate breaking the highway code in such a dangerous way.
