Viking Velo Cycling Club duo Julian Hesp and Andy Lewin were in action in a 25-mile time trial, and both recorded personal best times.

Scunthorpe Road Club’s open 25 mile time trial was held on the A180 between Grimsby and Scunthorpe.

Hesp managed the 25 miles in one hour and seven seconds, just failing to break the magical hour mark by seven seconds.

Lewin was just behind his team mate with one hour one minute and 33 seconds.

The stiff easterly breeze made the return leg to Grimsby very hard.

Overall, Hesp finished 13th and Lewin 17th of the 34 top class cyclists that took part.

Overall winner was Cherry Valley’s Ian Dalton.

The Viking Velo club event was rained off last week.
