A trio of local riders recorded quick times in the Alford Wheelers Open 10-mile time trial on the reasonably fast Gunby to Ulceby roundabout and back course.

The event was won by VC Beverley’s Darren Yarwood in a nippy 20min 33sec.

Local results: 21 Ehren Courtman (RPD Racing) 24:21, 23 Martin Lister (Witham Wheelers) 24:29, 28 David Herd (Witham Wheelers) 25:59.

+ The latest round of the TLI Lincolnshire Handicap Road Race League was promoted by Witham Wheelers on the Skillington circuit.

Thirty-six riders were split into three ability groups with eight minutes separating the first and last riders. The handicapping proved to be pretty accurate as all three groups finally came together on the drag out of Skillington with three miles to go on the final lap.

In a close sprint, the current leader of the league, junior Kieran Hotson from Grimsby, proved too strong and took a clear victory. Best of the local riders was Ehren Courtman in a good eighth place.

+ Club 10 results: 1 John Pilgrim 22:20, 2 Henry Gould 24:26, 3 Matthew Kingston-Lee 24:36, 4 Mick Egner 24:43, 5 Simon Cocker 24:53, 6 Tony Hardenberg 26:23, 7 Chris Masters 26:43, 8 Dave Strickson 26:50, 9 Nev Chamberlain 27:38, 10 Louise George 27:49, 11 Wayne Searle 28:25, 12 Bill Harrison 28:28, 13 Mick Smith 28:31, 14 Guy Haws 28:38, 15 Phil Smith 28:56, 16 Joshua Gibson 29:36, 17 Phil Gibson 29:38, 18 Julie Clark 29:51, 19 Barry Gell 30:16, 20 Adrian Jones 31:11, 21 Vicky Safarris 32:24, 22 Jack Simpson 36:04, 23 Evangeline Searle 37:40.
