Yesterday, Addiscombe CC promoted the Team Time Trial Championships on the traditional 34-mile circuit of Alford/Kirdford. This year numbers were a lot lower than in previous years but this didn’t deter some hard racing by all the teams present.


Bathed in warm sunshine, the first team to be sent on their way was the Vets team from Oxted CC who were pushed away at 13:03.


During the event no incidents were recorded, which was great, and in the end, it was Kingston Wheelers who came out tops winning with a time of 1:15:28. Brighton Mitre finished 1:56s off the leaders to claim 2nd place finishing with a time of 1:17:24. 3rd went to Oxted CC with a time of 1:18:07.


A super day of racing with Addiscombe CC hosting the event superbly.
