Gainsborough Trent Valley Road Club staged their first evening time trial last Thursday on the Marton-Torksey course.

After the tragic death of a rider in the club’s open event on 18th March concern for the safety of riders has led to new regulations being implemented.

In future competitors must wear a helmet of an approved standard and a working rear light, either flashing or still, must be fitted.

Bigger and larger signs will be set out at the time of the event.

With the club’s scratch riders not present it was Paul Brownless who showed he could give them a run for their money this season when he clocked a superb 12mins 3secs.

Full results: Paul Brownless 12-03, Luke Mathew 12-09, Tony Ditchburn 12-47, Ian Ferraby 13-01, Mark Leeson 13-48, Rebecca Allen 14-29, Justin Atkinson 14-56, Kevin Bilcliffe 16-24. Private trialists: Paul Clarke (Lincoln Wheelers) 13-33, Matt Arden 16-37.

Tonight there is a 10-mile time trial on the Lea-Torksey course, start 6.30pm.
