SCCU Sporting 10
26 March
A lovely sunny afternoon but the very windy and gusty conditions made the the Southern Counties Sporting 10 a real trial. 2 Old Ports, myself and Dave Phillips, rode the event. The course from Oakwood Hill ran, North, UP through Ockley and, West towards Cranleigh before turning South and DOWN to the finish by the Start. The wind was a block headwind up the 3 mile climb to Ockley, not steep but in the conditions it was tortuous. The tailwind on the return leg was very welcome.

I did a personal worst time of 30:23, which I am happy with as it was a first 10 in some years and my first race of the season.(I have always hated 10s passionately as they play to my major weaknesses). Dave Phillips however did a marvellous 26:54 which I think put him in the top 15 finishers. Well done on that Dave.

A good friend of the Old Ports, Dave Churchill, currently very fit, did a 26:03 which puts Daves ride into perspective. The race was won by young Rob Sharland of Paceline RT in a mind blowing 21:55 more than a minute and an half clear of the next fastest.
