VCV First TT of 2020 Report

The first TT of the year was held on the Candover HCC283 course, a rolling route with a flat section down the Candover valley back to the finish at Old Alresford Church.

We had a good mix of junior, senior and vet riders with 31 signed on and 29 starters. Conditions were dry, moderate wind from the south and plenty of pent up enthusiasm from riders for their first event post Lockdown. The event was held under CTT guidelines with social restrictions in place and no tea and cake post event, hopefully this will change for the next event.

The leader board was headed by Ollie Winwood-Bratchell in 0:22:16 with Jamie Plumb a close 0:0:21 seconds behind, third place went to Ben Schooling from CCR Chichester in 0:23:20.

The battle amongst the juniors saw Matt Gilmour finish in 0:24:15 and Oscar Pratt close in at 0:24:40 whilst having fun overtaking Jamie Franklin up the penultimate hill!

Commendation to Kirsty Lewis for being the only lady riding and taking 6 minutes off her time from last year. Also a well done to a number of first timers, great commitment.

Thank you to the helpers on the day and especially Darren Lyons for the pre-event preparation, these events do not happen without the helpers, so thank you.
