STRATFORD Cycling Club’s time trial specialists have been out and about riding in a series of open ten-mile events around the Midlands.

Mick Stallard recorded 23.15 at Redditch, 23.10 in the Coventry event and 21.59 in the Beacon race.

Meanwhile, Martin Millington produced rides of 23.43 at Redditch and 23.26 at Coventry and Steve Huxley 27.06 at Redditch, 26,10 at Coventry and 24.49 at the Beacon event.

Adrian Osborn recorded 23.54 at Beacon, Declan Logue 29.13 at Redditch and 27.06 at Beacon and Stephen Eggleton clocked 25.09 in the Coventry event.

Meanwhile, the younger club members had a quieter week in which Zoe Parker was the best performer with third place in the under ten race in the Stratford club’s own event at Stourport-on-Severn. In the boys’ race Samuel Abbott was 13th.

In the under 12 race Spencer Corder finished seventh, an improving Joshua Darlow ninth, Lewis Tinsley tenth, Matthew Jordan 14th, Alex Burden 19th, Ben Machin 19th, Luke Brennan 23rd, Noah Harvey 24th and Joe Gregg 26th.

Harriet Tinsley put in a solid ride in the girls’ section to finish seventh.

In the under 14s race Tom Charles was 18th and Baden Green 26th.

Stratford’s evening time trial on May 18 was a cracker over a shortened course of just 4.8km because of roadworks.

The winner by just one second was guest rider Nick Gardner from Cycle Studio in 11mins, 21secs, from Martin Millington in 11.22.
