The weather was cool, and there was a medium cross/head wind. The trophy win was taken by a new club member, Paul Hardy with a commendable time of 1m 59s. Congratualtions to all who rode, it's a tough one that never gets easy, and commiserations to Anthony who lost his chain part way up!
George, with a number of other county riders went to Humberside for the National 10M Time Trial Championships and beat his previous club record time by 24s! The final times were
George Fox (45 Road Club) - 19:26 which is just under 31mph average speed (30.93mph)
Joel Lewis (Arbis-Colbert) - 19:53
Dave Lazenby (Baines Racing) - 19:54
