A cold morning with another nagging wind from the east. The wind proved helpful on the leg back from Brockenhurst, but hindered on the first leg out. The course has a long climb, a couple of fast descents, but also a couple of short sharp ascents to keep upsetting the rhythm.First home was Primera rider Paul Jones; like most, riding full TT spec and hoping the weather would warm up, with a very good 57.29. Only he and Andy Rivett (VC San Raphael) made it under the hour. First New Forest rider was Richard Parker, claiming another early season win, with Phil Jones second NFCC and Richard Mason third home rider.
