Round one of N&DCA series - Hugo and Sam battle for honour of fastest in the team!

Round one of the season long Northampton and District Series saw Team out in force at Middleton for the 19.1 mile event.

Early season form suggested that Sam Hayes and Hugo Hocknell were likely to be closely matched when it came to their first head to head and so it proved with Sam just taking the honour of fastest from the team on the day with his excellent 47:14 just pipping Hugo's 47:20. This was good enough for 14th and 15th place on the day and places them 8th and 9th in the series after the first round.

A little further down the field Steve Robinson took over 3 minutes off his course PB to record 50:40 for 40th place. His father Roy Robinson also enjoyed a cracking first event in team colours to finish with 60:46 which was several minutes faster than he expected, and put him just ahead of the final member of the team Stuart Hocknell (who was the only one to get caught in the rising wind and hail!) to clock 65:13.
