Saturday 14th April 2018 saw UOBCC send 4 squads over to Tomarton, Somerset for the BUCS 3-up TTT. The first men's trio of Hugh Brashaw, Freddy Carlton and Ted Cross started off the day with a strong ride despite a few hold ups and a mechanical. They recovered well to finish in the middle of the group. Next up was James Pittard, Jamie Atkins and Oliver Walker-Hayes, riding smoothly to finish a few minutes down on the other team under blue skies.
As the afternoon drew in, the women took to the roads. First off were Bekah Nash, Hester Stembridge and Hollie Hindley, riding exceptionally well to finish in a time of 1:00.17 and 5th place, a time that would've seen them finish in 2nd place in 2017.
The start sheet had saved our best until last as Kate Mactear, Lottie Mallin Martin and Meg Dickerson left the start just after 4pm. They rode seamlessly and with enormous power to secure the gold medal in a time of 56.20, a full 51 seconds ahead of Oxford University in second and the University of Cambridge in third.
A huge congratulations to everyone who took part and did their jerseys proud!
We'd also like to say a huge thank you to our sponsors, without whom this success across the club wouldn't be possible. Another thank you to Avid Sport and Bath University Cycling Club for organising the event.
