A break from the usual Witham Wheelers 10 mile time trial saw the first counting event for the Fred Branston Trophy.

Held over three circuit time trial courses over different distances, the competition opener was a 12.2 mile lumpy course from Hungerton to Saltby, Sproxton, Skillington and back via Ponton Heath, with a strong westerley breeze making the opening stretch up to Saltby a tough start.

Reece Egner continued his good run of form, just beating John Pilgrim by three seconds in 28min 19sec, with younger brother Adam more than a minute further back.

Louise George was fastest lady in 35.24, from Sophie Hunt 37.03 and Carol Milne 37.12. Ehren Courtman was first schoolboy with 33.52 and a good ride by 12-year-old Evangeline Searle saw her lapping in 50.36

The club’s regular 10 mile TT league resumes on Tuesday evening. Sign on at Grantham Cricket Club on Gorse Lane from 6pm. First rider starts at 6.45pm. All welcome.
