Both members of the promoting club, Alex Colman and Tracey Wilkinson were fastest male and female riders respectively at the Alford Wheelers hilly 25-mile time trial in Lincolnshire on Sunday morning.
Colman, 30 and from Lincoln, clocked 57-54 for the C25/10 course near Skendleby, giving him the win by 31 seconds from veteran Darren Yarwood (Vive le Velo), while third spot went to Steve Guymer (Squadra RT), who was 1-07 off Colman’s pace.
Meanwhile, 51-year-old Wilkinson clocked 1-31-59 to take the women’s prize and help Alford Wheelers dominate most categories.
The course takes riders from Gunby roundabout through Ulceby and towards Louth, through Swaby and Burwell before retracing to a finish just short of the start point.
While most people had a good ride with sunny conditions, which had also made the roads unusually busy which helped and hindered depending on your luck. But temperatures are still not much improved and a cold wind blowing in from the sea didn’t help.
One rider was lucky to escape with just cuts and bruises after finding a pot hole which left him with a broken disc wheel, broken tri spoke and a smashed helmet.
In other categories Yarwood was fastest of the veterans, while 17-year-old Jake Jackson (Elmore Factory Racing) was the pick of the juniors with a time of 1-05-25 to finish ninth overall.
