Wintry conditions returned for the first of twelve scoring rounds in the Bourne Wheelers’ 2016 Time Trial league on the Greatford 10mile course. Twelve brave souls battled single digit temperatures and a biting wind, making for a slow evening.
In the Scratch competition, Tom Comben was on winning form, coming home in 23:57 taking 20 points with Matt Green 5 seconds behind at 24:02 in 2nd (18 pts) and Graham Wright (Peterborough CC) taking 3rd place with 25:16 (16pts).
In the Handicap competition, the honours went to three new members: Damian Langdon in 1st place (20pts), Steve Ellis in 2nd place (18pts) and Graham Wright (Peterborough CC) in 3rd place (16pts).
The Vets on Standard competition was sewn-up by Mike Smalley (Witham Wheelers) in 1st (20pts), Cliff Hilless in 2nd (18pts) and Tom Comben in 3rd (16 pts).
Despite the slow conditions, Ian Davison smashed his course personal best by over 1 minute with 28:35.
