Hutchinson is the Boston Wheelers 25-mile TT champion

PAUL Hutchinson is the Boston Wheelers Cycling Club 25-mile Time Trial Champion for 2012.

He took the title on the CTT 100th Anniversary 25 event, which doubled up as the club title, on a flat exposed course from Coningsby, Langrick, Frithville, to Tumby.

Although the weather was warm and sunny, there was a stiff easterly breeze that did nobody any favours.

He posted a time of 1 hour 04 mins 05 secs, placing him 19th overall.

Other Boston riders were Ian Scott, 1:06.53 (28th) and Dave Grayson, 1:08.22 (38th).

The overall winner was James Colman 53.15.

The good weather held for the fourth round of the 10-Mile TT league last Tuesday.

Even the wind had dropped and, although six members were away watching the City Centre Racing in Peterborough, it gave others the opportunity to gather some good points.

There were five personal best times set on the night, the best being from Richard Leggate, who recorded 28.16, some three minutes inside his previous PB.

Chris Clayton 28.32 (PB), Sam Cowan 25.53 (PB), Simon Plaice 25.05 (PB) and Trev Yates 27.00 (PB) were the others.

Results: Dan Carr 24.38, Simon Plaice 25.05, Ian Scott 25.19, Sam Cowan 25.53, Peter Flint 25.58, Dave Grayson 26.02, Trev Yates 27.00, Richard Leggate 28.16, Chris Clayton 28.32, Martin Roberts 36.03.

Private trial: Adrian Marshall (Yello Velo) 24.39.

On Wednesday, three members of Boston Wheelers entered the Lincolnshire Handicap Series race held at Ingham, Lincoln.

Eight laps of a relatively short course, with a very sharp climb each lap, certainly sorts out the field.

Charlie Porter had a strong finish, finishing eighth.

This is Charlie’s fourth top-eight placing, already having a first place to his credit.

At present, Charlie is in a top-three place overall, although exact placing’s have yet to be confirmed.

Craig Thursby had a top 20 placing and Simon Plaice a top 30 placing.

Round five is on Wednesday at Limber.

The Wheelers meet on Tuesday evenings at 6.30pm on New Hamond Beck Road (alongside B&Q) and every Sunday morning outside Boston’s main Post Office, on Park gate, at 9am.
