Viking Velo riders tackled the 15 mile route from Laughton Lane to Susworth and back.

Not too many riders fancied this one, after a heavy downpour in the late afternoon.

The 15 mile race was won in some style by Andy Lewin in a superb time of 34:24, which has very rarely been bettered.

Lewin was chased home by Julian Hesp in another great time of 35 dead.

Results (15 miles): 1st Lewin 34:24 (Viking Velo), 2nd Hesp 35:00 (Viking Velo), 3rd David Butler 35:38 (Lincoln Wheelers), 4th Ian Ferraby 40:12 (Viking Velo)

Results (8 .3 miles): 1st Arran Watson and Andy Clarke (Tandem) 22:07 (Viking Velo).

On Thursday 21st August Viking Velo will host a 10.5 mile race starting 6.30pm on Laughton Lane.
