A glorious early autumn morning for the event yet again; the sort of morning beloved by riders and marshals alike. As ever, the Eagle Hut made the perfect Headquarters.

A smaller field than 2015 but neverthless there was keen competition and with the eventual winning and second-placed teams starting lower down the field, there was mounting excitement but ultimate disappointment for the early leaders. Once again the fastest Team were Colin Ward and Jeff Orrey from Essex Roads, who eclipsed their 2015 time by over a minute.

Unfortunately there were 3 punctures but some riders battled on to record solo times.

Thanks must go to the TImekeepers, marshals, results coordinators, pushers-off and finally to Viv and Cathy for the excellent fare in the Tearooms.

The final Eastern Counties TT for 2016 took place on the E2 on Saturday 17th September.

There was a keen NNW wind and some patches of very fine drizzle but Rob D and John W took advantage of the tailwind out and the wind direction meant that the way home was partially sheltered too.

As a consequence they were able to post fair times.

Rob D        22:13

John W      25:30


This result meant that John finished 8th in the ECCA Short Distance Points Trophy.


So that's the end of the Counties TT for another year. Well done guys for showing off the Hainault colours for another racing season.

On Sunday 21st August, starting at 08.32, John W tackled the Counties 25 on the E9 course. There was a healthy cross wind between Leaden Roding and Clopton Hall Lane which proved difficult for some riders. John managed a 1:13:05 which he would have been happy with in 2015 but was >5 minutes outside his PB for this season. Winner was Richard Price (London Phoenix in 54:41.

And on 29th August, Bank Holiday Monday, also tacking a 25 miler was our Dan Smith in the Essex Roads TT on the E11;  the first rider was off at 07:00.

Dan says "Despite the flat looking profile, I found it a tough course. Lots of drags. And a very early start......nice morning for it though!"

He managed a 1:01:55..............the event was won by Colin Ward (Essex Roads) with a 52!

Rob D took part in the ECCA Open 12 hour Time Trial on Sunday 14th August. On a warmish day with a variable breeze the field of 60 riders cruised around 4 circuits with noisy support from Club members; Graham was there to keep Rob fuelled up throughout the day.

Rob had a good ride with a personal best on this course of 260.9 miles, riding strongly around the final circuit and catching many other riders. The event was won by Richard Bideau ( Pendle Forest CC) who clocked up 305 miles.
