The 15 mile championship was run on the H15/1 course near Newbury with a strong field of 110 riders. A fine if rather breezy afternoon helped produce some excellent performances. The 15 mile champion is Ron Hallam, adding another title to his palmares, but only just beating a great ride by Keith Ainsworth. Angela Carpenter was a convincing winner of the gold medal for first woman, and is pictured above (courtesy Kimroy Photography). Norman Harvey and Mary Corbett are Tandem Champions. Best Club team went to Drag2Zero and Best Group Team to London & Home Counties.
Many thanks to Rachael Elliott, Jim Burgin, Barry Quick, David Guy and all the other helpers, marshals and timekeepers from the London & Home Counties Group for an excellent event.
