The Tour de Yorkshire certainly took it out of the Boston Wheelers CC members last week.
After completing their 80-miles course, complete with 3000m of climbing, which will be part of this year’s Tour de France, results from Tuesday’s 10-mile Time Trial League were seemingly affected.
On yet another tough night for cycling, Earl Taylor showed that he is not going to be beaten easily.
He was just a handful of seconds outside a personal best time, clocking 22 mins 45 secs with a very tired Darren Smith second in (23-27).
Other times were: Martin White 23-55, Shane Gowling 24-15, Nick Milward 25-14, Simon Plaice 25-37, Pete Flint 26-20, Maddy Verdegaal 26-23 (lady), Jonathan Self 26-36, Mark Stones 29-48, Paul Winrow 29-50, Sam Trotter 32-04 (youth), David Nunn 34-57
With no Rockingham circuit racing last Thursday, junior Danny Storey took on the Mallory Park track, finishing in fourth place in the Category 3-4 senior race.
Thomas Smith (eight) and Bradley Worth (11) - pictured - decided to challenge themselves at the Scunthorpe Poly Youth Road Race at Blyton, near Gainsborough. In the Under 16s 10-mile race, Thomas was 13th and Bradley 15th.
Boston United and Boston Wheelers have joined forces to launch their social cycling initiative.
Just arrive on any bike and a helmet on Friday evenings at York Street (6pm) to take part in the vent, open to all ages and abilities.
