Myles Foskett won the latest round of a combined Club Championship and mid TT series.
As Myles prepares for the National Junior 25 mile championship in a few weeks he stormed round the two 10 mile laps in 48.01.
Matt Plews was second fastest in 50.07 and new member Julian Twyham was third in 51.55. Fastest lady was Linda Hubbard in 56.23.
Dave Birch was the only Welland Valley rider to make the long trek to South Cambridgeshire for the N&DCA 25 mile time trial based at Guilden Morden. Birch finished, in sweltering heat, in 1.14.12 which gained him second place in his age group. The winner was John Mulvey of Cambridge University CC, who finished, clearly unaffected by the heat, in 53.59.
The final weekend of the tour also clashes with a Whizz Kids skills session in Welland Park tomorrow from 2:00pm.
With many potential tour or Olympic champions dialling in skills in a great relaxed, fun and traffic free enviroment (luckily no white lines!).
Round 7 of the N&DCA takes place near Guilden Morden a 25 mile tt. Enjoy a cycle ride in the lanes - don't forget to wave.
And for the armchair cyclist a Tour de France double header.
I predict a double or even trebble celebration as Froome gets Yellow, Yates takes White and McLay sprints to a stage victory on The Avenue des Champs-Élysées.
Relax, enjoy and be safe.
