March 2020 Results and Overall GC Position

March happily saw an easing of the rain that has plagued us at the start of this year. Notwithstanding the ‘lockdown’ caused by the Coronavirus pandemic, some great efforts were put in for this month’s ‘Salt Lane to Beauworth bash’ segment.

This challenging TT segment saw the men’s competition really light up. James Cocker took first position with a new KoM of 06:09, pushing Ben Gibbs into a close second place. Jim Cascerini took third just ahead of Christopher Purver. These same four VCV members have locked out the top four positions for two consecutive months. Can anyone else challenge their dominance?

In the women’s competition Izzy Wild for the third month in a row, rode unchallenged to first place, clocking a time of 07:50 and taking the QoM with it. Izzy’s lead in the women’s competition now seems unassailable at 45 points.

April’s ‘Stoke Charity Smash’ segment is one for the Sprinters so make sure you tackle it with fresh legs to push out maximum watts.
