Adam Ellis returned to Rockingham Speedway on Thursday to take part in the NCRA Evening Circuit Series.

Competing in the British Cycling Category 2/3 Race, Velo-One rider Ellis rode an aggressive race being part of a breakaway group before finishing 10th overall in a sprint finish.

Sunday was the Lincolnshire Road Riding Association 25-Mile Time Trial Championships.

Held on the C25/2 Course, starting and finishing at Frithville, 75 riders from across the county took part, competing for individual and team awards.

Neil Palmer posted a time of 54 mins 34 secs, finishing second overall in the LRRA Individual standings.

Just outside of the medals was Antony Gough, finishing fourth overall with a time of 55 mins 35 secs.

Joshua Wallis posted a time of 1 hr 1 min 08 secs after riding an extended course due to a wrong turning.

The combined times for the three riders provisionally places Velo-One second in the LRRA team Award, 12 seconds behind winners Sleaford Wheelers CC.

The final LRRA event of the year is the 30 Mile Time Trial Championships on September 4, where the team will be looking to finish the season on the top step.
