Members of Boston Wheelers have been in action at the Sleaford Wheelers CC Charity 10-Mile Time Trial.

Cherry Valley Racing’s Ian Dalton (22-12) was the outright winner, ahead of Boston’s Craig Thursby, who was 17th in 24-20, Dan Carr (30th, 25-25) and Neil Coles (31-09).

Carr, Thursby, Charlie Porter and Chris Clayton then took part in the Pedal Pushers Circuit League Race One, held on a very bleak RAF Barkston circuit.

In the CAT 4 race, Carr finished just outside of the top 10 and Clayton came home in a later group.

Thursby and Porter rode in the CAT 2-4 race, and were unable to recover from the split on the second lap.

The Elveden Road Race Series round two saw Carr slipped out of the top 10 200m before the finish, an inexperienced rider bringing him off his bike.

Boston Wheelers will become the latest G0-Ride Club in Lincolnshire, offering weekly sessions from May 11 at the Peter Paine Sports Centre, Rosebery Avenue (10.30-11.30). Sessions are open to all seven-14 year-olds with a bike and helmet.
