As Saturday was a lovely & I’d got all the nettles strummed down & the grass [mainly moss] cut we thought a trip to watch the Centre Champs Ivan Manning Timed Trial could be a nice way to spend Sunday morning.. It was! We’ve never been along Stanton Wick Lane before, although I think I’ve been to the Carpenters once many years ago after a hockey match. Great views from the venue & you would never know how close you are the Bristol. That big red brick building you can see, which looks like an old industrial building, perhaps a pump house?, actually used to bthe e Pensford Colliery winding house
Anyway here are the Results for you, NSMSC Ivan Manning TT Results 200915 (click!)
As Jerry Walters says:
“Morning Frank, hope you enjoyed your morning in sunny summerset!
Results of yesterday’s North Somerset Club Time Trial are attached for the website. In the Trials class a flying Andy Frost took a convincing victory, setting standard time and finishing 6 marks clear of Jason Hamblin. Simon Prideaux celebrated his return to Time Trials after a summer break by taking third place.
In the Scrambles class Harvey Dark was gifted the win when Tom Smith retired with a broken chain, finishing well clear of “Old Timer” Nick Shephard in second spot, and Step Dad Julian Rigby in third.
Great venue complete with a ‘practice track” for small boys & girls with balance & pedal bikes on a gentle slope with running water! and with nice sunny morning what more could you want from Sunday?
The next NSMSC Event is the 90minute Club Restricted (click) NSMSC Gordon Brown Chase TT – 181015 so get those entries in!
Scott Trial: it looks as if Jerry Cross is the only Wessex Centre rider this year, I knew he was in & wish him good luck, an early number & that he makes it to the finish.Not too many people from ‘the south’ have entered, notably Tom Hooper is in, but as far as a quick scan goes it looks like just Peter Rew & Chris Shorey from SW Centre, Miles Carruthers & Martin Carter from Southern Centre, Sam (together with Ray, Joe and Tom) Haslam from Berko (S Midland), Graham Marfleet flying the flag for West Essex MCC (my first Club!), & Ross Danby, Simon Wearmouth (who Jerry has been practicing with) from Caldicot. Sole foreigner is Michele Bosi. If you’ve not ridden or watched you don’t know what you are missing!
Safe riding: Frank
