It was good to see so many Oxted riders, and there were some excellent rides. It’s very pleasing to see our juniors, Nick Martin and Mikey Weavers doing so well – both recording 25’s for the first time.
Also how about Oxted’s Christopher Frewood, aged 15, riding his first time trial wearing trainers and on a bike that cost £30.00, and recording 28.06! I seem to recall that Sean Yates started in a similar fashion!
Results as follows:- Mark Bashford 23.46 Steve Dennis 24.23 (fixed wheel) Thomas Seller 24.48 (Oxted CC) Adam Grange 25.18 Geoff Watson 25.18 Chris Balkham 25.32 (Oxted CC) Nick Martin 25.49 Ben Crick 25.55 Mikey Weavers 25.57 Noah Faiers 26.10 (Oxted CC) Simon Neave 26.16 Richard Woodward 26.21 Luke DeQuay 26.46 (fixed wheel) Russell Hicks 27.28 (Oxted CC) Rick Brimicombe 27.45 (Come and try it – first time trial) Duncan Green 27.49 (Oxted CC) Christopher Frewood 28.06 (Oxted CC) Val Place 28.16 (Oxted CC) Scott Cheshire 28.27 (Oxted CC) Phil Clarke 28.27 (Oxted CC) Tim Evans 29.24 (Anerley B.C.)

Paul has unfortunately broken his collar bone after coming down on the second lap, but is in good spirits.
Many thanks to Chris Daniels for time keeping, Richard Blackmore for pushing off and Lindsay (Oxted CC) and Ben Hardisty for marshalling.
Note to all riders – on the corners please stay on the right side of the white line in the middle of the road – thanks
