Some surprisingly heavy showers saw several riders who'd travelled out the the event on their bikes arrive soaked to the skin and feeling rather cold (I was one of them). The elements then conspired to hit us with a second shower as riders 'warmed up', so that a pretty soggy and shivering crew of testers lined up at the start of the NBRC Championship '10'. Despite the large puddles of standing water in various places on the course, the roads near the turn were bone dry! The return leg was definitely quicker.

Richard Golding was fastest on the night, with Robert Saunders coming in a close second to take the NBRC '10' Championship. Fastest woman was Helene Wight. It was rather gratifying to see the large turnout of 21 riders, including 11 NBRC members, among them Steph Cousins who's been able to race rather than watch the watches recently. Once again we had a new rider trying time trialling for the first time, Martin Scudder, who turned out on his road bike and defied his nerves for a creditable 17th place - hopefully Martin will come again!

Thanks to John Pick (Chronos RT) for helping Tony with the timekeeping, and Bryan for the pushing off.
