Ounce each season at the Ashby Pastures mid week time trial event one extra lap is added in to make the distance 13.4 miles, and last weeks event was the chosen date for this. As with most time trial’s staged this season heavy rain all day made the circuit tricky and decimated the field of competitors. The difficult conditions didn’t effect Goadby Marwood based Rider Steve Savage ( Leicestershire road Club) who for the second week running set a new course record of 30 mins 32 seconds, Melton Olympic’s inform rider so far this season James Ison was unlucky to suffer a mechanical breakdown on his second lap, leaving the gate open for veteran Mick Stevens to take second place, and Andrew Keightley to finish third, both riders also taking the top two places on handicap.
James Ison recovered from his mid week disappointment to compete in his first ever 50 mile time trial at the Lincolnshire RRA open event on Sunday. his form this season continued to impress as he finished in 1 hour 54 minutes 23 seconds to take second place, the winner was Andrew Whiteley in 1 hour 49 mins 54 secs.
