The club had its second visit over to the new Sturminster Newton-based course, with Paul Hopkins winning and beating his own course record with 23.34, a quick time on such a hilly course. Championship leader Vince Hounsome was second, just five seconds ahead of Kim Little. A returning Simon Barfoot was fourth from Julian Calloway who rode well for fifth. James Chant spent some time in a hedge after meeting a milk tanker and running out of room at the Hindgaston bends but finished sixth, just ahead of fastest junior Liam Teesdale. Jane Pritchard was the quickest lady rider. Results
Offcamber held the third round of their tt series on the Todber course on Sunday, a low turnout of just six riders giving James Chant first place with a time of 25.29, beating Chris Mullett (a course best of 26.08) and Andy Parsons (26.23). Barney Cox also set a pb with 26.49.
Vince Hounsome continued his unbeaten winning streak in triathlons, picking up another over-50s win at the Blandford tri. Vince was 8th overall in spite of having to stop at the Durweston bridge traffic lights during a very hilly bike route.
