Karla Boddy (High Wycombe CC – RT) repeated her 2012 success in the event to take to women’s top spot in 1.01.08. In the Junior category, Joe Fry (RST RT) took the honours for the under 18’s with a time of 54.07, also good enough to place inside the top 10 overall. Despite the very cold conditions, 112 riders started out of a full field of 120 plus 15 reserves.

Rider Reactions:
“I don’t know what to say” said Daniel Northover, Finsbury Park CC. “Freezing cold and roadworks couldn’t dampen the spirit of your fine time trial on Sunday. Brilliant marshalling and organisation topped off with a (more importantly) amazing tea and cake selection at the end! Thanks so much for your efforts, I really feel like I experienced something special this weekend. Thanks again and hope you and all your riders have a good year ahead”.

Tom Cosgrove (VTTA London & Home Counties) meanwhile said “I’d just like to say thank you for organising the North Road Hardriders event. I had a great ride, although I am very slow. Since I think everyone after me went past, I was probably the last rider on the road. Please thank the marshals for waiting for me to go through. The only time I have done this event before was in 1986, when I finished in 1:18:25, so assuming the 1:18:24 I noted is correct, I beat my time from back then by exactly 1 second! A shame the route was 3 miles shorter! Again, thank you very much – I had a fantastic morning”.

Former winner Wouter Sybrandy emailed the organisers to say “Thanks for organising another great event today” while Richard Lofthouse (Eagle RC) told the organisers “Thanks for a great event Neil. Thanks for clearing Cucumber Lane which had enough ice left to be interesting anyway. Looking forward to seeing full results and doing it again next year! I was so cold I had to leave before the big guns came in.”

Course was shortened to 22 miles due to over running roadworks on Darnicle Hill. Temperature didn’t get above 1 degree and there were patches of ice in places. Out of the 135 including reserves on the start sheet, 112 started which was outstanding given the conditions
