34th Nomads Hilly – Report from Duncan

On a fine and fairly warm morning Tony Draper and Les Clarke made a fine Nomad sandwich in the club Hilly; taking first and last place. Kristian Cave said he would gone a lot quicker had he not had to wait for his Dad Steve on all the hills. Steve Cave was riding “shotgun” behind behind Kristian; presumably in training for the Redmon GP in ten years time.
Steve and Kristian completed the “Tour of Flanders” sportive last week, climbing many of the bergs that are part of the Pro event, not bad for a fouteen year old. Of course, once again, Kristian had to wait for Steve on all the hills. Congratulations.Everybody seemed quite pleased with their times.Many thanks to Duncan for putting out and collecting the signs (that’s one more lap than the riders), Paddy and Bob Loader for marshalling and Norman for being pusheroff and spotter. Timekeeper was me. All we need next year is a few more Nomads out. President Richard (with his aide de camp Pete) graced us with his presence after the event proclaiming “Today is a training day” before preceeding off in the general direction of Hastings.
