Charles Rees scored a narrow win in horrible wet and windy conditions at the latest tt. Charles was just two seconds ahead of Nigel Brown with a time of 24.17 and he now moves to the top of the championship table. Visiting rider Dan Brunton (BioBike RT) was third with Jay Hookins, Julian Chown, Kim Little and Simon Barfoot all closely matched behind.
It seems very early in the season to have wrapped up championships but both Jane Pritchard and Josh Day have already sewn up the women’s and juniors’ titles for 2011 – congratulations to them both.

In two weeks time (20.7.11), I’ll be breaking Marco Pantani’s pb on Alpe d’Huez. If you could put out and collect the signs at the Stour Provost tt then please e-mail me or let me know at Bruton next week
