Welland Valley Cycling Club
James Garratt took a break from exam revision to record the fastest 10 miles at last night’s latest round of the midweek Welland Valley Cycling Club time-trial series.
35 riders took to the start line to ‘enjoy’ a rolling 10 miles cutting through the Naseby battlefields and finishing on the long straight adjacent to Husbands Bosworth Gliding Centre.
James recorded 22:00 minutes finishing 49 seconds ahead of Ollie Taylor who in turn was well clear of the rapidly improving junior rider Myles Foskett 23:46. The battle behind this trio was incredibly tight with Jon Durnin 24:47 and Mark Traynor 24:58 topping out the top five. Fastest lady was the ever consistent Linda Hubbard 26:37 and fastest Youth was Louis Jakobson taking a break from Mountain Bike racing riding a cyclo-cross bike to record 30:05.
Next Tuesday the club event is two-up 19mile time-trial – two laps of the Husbands Bosworth / Naseby/ circuit.

Many thanks to everyone who helped at Mallory Park this evening. The support the club gives to Mike Tweleves enables Welland Valley members a reduced entry fee.
We are due to help again in September.
The racing was a game of two halves, finish straight downhill with a tail wind and the back straight was slightly uphill into the wind. Great to see Whizz Kids getting involved and enjoying the racing.
