Lewin’s run of wins ended by rival Hesp

Last Sunday Viking Velo raced 10 miles from Knaith to Torksey and back.

Andy Lewin’s recent run of victories was brought to an end, albeit by a very small margin, by Julian Hesp.

Hesp won the event with a time of 23:07, beating Lewin by just 11 seconds.

The Viking Velo duo expected to be pushed hard by the Trent Valley Tandem team of the Pycroft brothers, Paul and Shaun.

Unfortunately they suffered from a dropped chain which saw them have to retire from the race after only a couple of miles.

This week’s event is an 18 or nine mile race which starts outside Gainsborough Golf Club on Thursday 4th September. Riders should meet at 6.15pm.

Results: 1st Julian Hesp 23:07 (Viking Velo), 2nd Andy Lewin 23:18 (Viking Velo), 3rd Joe Nash 26:06 (Viking Velo), 4th Ian Ferraby 27:48 (Viking Velo), 5th Arran Watson 28:35 (Viking Velo), 6th Matt Fieldson 30:30 (Viking Velo), Sean Pycroft & Paul Pycroft Tandem DNF (Trent Valley Road Club).
