Fantastic racing conditions greeted the riders taking part in the evening 10 around our Horne Course. Perhaps motivated by the Tour de France stage 16 Time Trial (no spoilers here!) we had a good field of 16 riders setting off against the clock. ⏱️
Piers finally got the chance to set a time around Horne for the first time, with a solid time of 26:52 on a road bike. Claire also got her first taste of the ‘race of truth’ with a 2-up with Luke. 🥰
Just 11 seconds separated first and second place, with Mark Bashford (EGCC) pipping Chris Balkham (OCC) to the win. Adrian Blacker (VTTA) took third on the night. 👏
Francine Davis (EGCC) took the points in the ladies overall competition with another impressive time of 27:06 💪
