Club TT result, 12 May 2015, Nettlebed-Pishill HCC259
We had a proper race tonight. The result is remarkably tight all the way through the field and times were a bit faster than I anticipated. I don’t have a problem with that!
Potential winner Ken Buckley did have problems though, tearing along until his progress was checked by a rear puncture and the rear brake caliper becoming detached. Oops. Still finished, mind, unlike unlucky visitor Simon Goodwin who failed to make the last turn correctly and went off course. A remarkable ride from Will Haynes who very nearly won the event – on his road bike. Not exactly a beginner, he’s a former Elite category roadman. Emma Grant does race in the Elite ranks and duly trounced the greater part of the male field. Luke Dixon seems to have had a 1:30 late start but we are kindly showing his actual time. There was a storming ride from the House/Gaida tandem and props go to the winner Martin Cairns who squeezed out a narrow victory on his local roads.
Big thanks tonight to your officials, Warren Davies on timing duty and Gary Baker pushing off.
Next week we head West for one lap of the classic Bucklebury circuit. More on that in due course.
