P341 Thorney Hill

Boardman takes Braggers rights hold slim advantage writes Andrew Hanley........

New Forest Cycling Club held the first of two hilly time trials on the attritional Thorney Hill P341 circuit on Tuesday this week. The course starts at Thorney Hill, descends into Burley, heading off towards Crow before the final sting in the tail of the Braggers Lane climb is tackled before the finishing line. If the course wasn’t testing enough, classic spring time British weather added to the event in the form of showers and a stiff south westerly. It was Ben Boardman who overcame Gary Lock by 23 seconds in times of 23:42 and 24:05 respectively. Ben commented after the race that he knew he had to save a bit before the Braggers Lane climb, as time can easily be lost there, you know the end is near so you can empty the tank and hang on til the finish. Previous winner of the Hill series, Stuart Peckham came in in third place, but has a lot of work to do to close the gap on the leaders to regain the title. It looks to be a two horse race between Ben and Gary to claim the series win in a few weeks’ time.
