Local Riders,Local Races

Harry Bulstrode (Contre la Montre) scored a weekend double on the Romsey-Brook course in Hampshire. Saturday’s solo 10 mile time trial was run off in calm conditions and Bulstrode set a new course record with 21.38. Sunday’s two-up team 10 was a different story however, as heavy rain made it a day for the hard men. Riding with team mate Andy Bryson, the pair clocked 21.57, drying out at the HQ Bulstrode said “It was quite frightening I could not see, I had a visor on and it kept steaming up because of the rain” Poole Wheelers pair, Gary Dighton & Terry Icke, had placed 4th & 5th respectively in the solo event but decided not to start the deluged two-up. The two events were promoted by former British Best all-rounder, Glenn Longland to mark the 40th anniversary of his first ever time trial.

Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers opened their 2012 club programme with the quirky "mountain bike 10". Competitors are encouraged to ride "Off Road" machines "On Road". Dave Pickering proved fastest in the windy conditions, clocking 29.57 just 2 seconds ahead of Cliff Rowe, Andy Graham took third place with 30.28
Round 2 of the local Inter-Club TT series was called off due to torrential rain with standing water covering parts of the course. The series continues this weekend with a double-header: Bournemouth Jubilee run the 20 mile event on the Furzehill circuit on Saturday at 15:00. While on Sunday the Poole Wheelers 15 mile event on the Wareham-Gallows Hill course, starts at 09:00

Bob Jollife (New Forest CC )writes.......NEW Forest Cycling Club triathlete Gary Lock got his time trial season underway with a new personal best 10 in the Antelope Racing Team event on the King’s Somborne to Romsey course on Saturday.Gary, who seems to thrive in tough conditions, clipped seven seconds off his “personal” reducing it to 23-42 on a warm and sunny afternoon which was only spoiled by the stiff westerly which blew away the hopes of many other competitors.
The time trial was the first of two 10s at the weekend promoted by former British Best All Rounder Glenn Longland to mark the 40th anniversary of his first-ever time trial. Stuart Peckham, who has been putting in some sterling work during New Forest CC’s Wednesday evening turbo training sessions, reaped the rewards with an impressive 25-35.Gary Plumb was next best of a six-man “Forest” squad with 26-50 followed by new member Robert Brinsdon (28-00), returnee Martin Balk (30-32) and Bob Jolliffe (31-23).Winner with a course record 21-38 was Harry Bulstrode riding for the new Contre La Montre team. Bulstrode who is hitting top form early also took top honours in Sunday’s two-up team time trial on the same course.Riding with team-mate Andy Bryson he clocked 21-57 in heavy rain which produced huge puddles on parts of the course.Bulstrode said:“I like this course. I thought yesterday it did have a bit more of a tailwind back; but I think it comes down to whether you feel comfortable.”Bob Jolliffe and New Forest CC president, 72-year-old Roger Bacon, finished the event in the lantern rouge position in a time of 33-34.

New Forest CC kicks off its full programme of club time trials on Sunday with a 10-miler on the testing Holmsley-Burley circuit on Sunday (March 11). Event headquarters are at Goatspen car park. The first rider will face the timekeeper at 9.31am.
