Three of Trent Valley Road Club’s time trial specialists were in action at the Sleaford Wheelers CC 10 mile Time Trial in aid of Cancer Research UK.

Paul Brownless put in the club’s most successful effort of the day taking 44th place from a field of 99 riders.

Steve Jackson and Amanda Jackson were also in attendance finishing 59th and 87th respectively.

The club’s evening time trial league continued on Tuesday 15th April with the first ‘two up’ ride of the season.

In the two up time trails, riders are allowed to select their partner for the race.

Results on the day were as follows: 1st Paul Brownless and Andy Codd 24 minutes 16 seconds (time trial bike); 2nd Rob Webster and James Vickers 24:53 (road bike); 3rd Cliff and Ross Williams 32:07 (road bike); Shaun Pycroft 25:56 (solo time trial bike).

On 23rd April Rob Webster became Trent Valley Road Club’s first rider in 2014 to score points in the British Cycling National Standings, after an impressive ninth place ride in the Nottingham Evening Road Race League in Beeston, Nottingham.

Sunday’s ‘Come and Try It’ event was as successful as always with the shortened social ride of 30 miles and the five mile time trial event attracting 15 riders.

The first race of the club’s closed circuit league on Thursday 24th April was cancelled and the race has been rescheduled for Thursday 1st May.

The bi-weekly event is made up of two races on the closed circuit at the Lincolnshire Show Ground.

One Scratch Race and one Handicap race where time is awarded depending on a riders position in the Scratch Race.

Closed Circuit races are extremely fast and furious and very enjoyable, anyone wishing to ride in these events must be a member of the club.

The club also have a team riding the TLI Road League at Barton on Wednesday 30th April.
