Viking Velo Cycling Club duo Julian Hesp and Andy Lewin raced in Scunthorpe Road Club’s open 25 mile time trial last weekend.

The race was conducted in tough conditions, the wind and rain making life difficult for the riders.

The Viking Velo pair are known for battling fiercely in the region’s races, but on this occasion it was Hesp who finished in front of his team-mate.

He recorded a time of 56.57, against Lewin’s 57.49.

Hesp took seventh place overall, while Lewin had to settle for ninth.

The winner, A. Gascoine, set a new track record with his time of 51.04.
