A compact field of 21 made the start sheet of this early season 22 mile TT run under CTT rules.  No snow was visible which had made a nice change from the previous few weeks, in fact the sun was shining following a special request.  The riders came from as far away as Cambridge University.  The course ran from South Muskham near Newark, Notts up to Ollerton and back again - a rolling course and the home for Newark Castle CC's hard rider course - one which can take the unwary rider by surprise.
Top 3 men were:
  1. Peter Nicholls (Race Hub) 47:05 (course record) - veteran
  2. James Bentley (Team Bottrill / Vanguard )  48:30 - espoir
  3. Alistair Golby (Cambridge University CC)  48:42 - espoir
Top and only female was Molly Hodges (Avid Sport) 62:58 - senior
Peter and Molly received their winners prizes from experienced club racer Alf Davies.
