The UK Time Trial scene is slowly coming to a close.

Last weekend the final Lincolnshire Championships, a 30 Mile TT, was held on a new C30/2 course, taking in the A52/A15 roads at Osbournby, Quarrington and Donnigton.

Velo-One Cycling were looking to maintain their great individual and team successes from previous Lincolnshire championships.

Conditions for the event were challenging, with high wind speeds across parts of the course, reducing speeds considerably.

Velo-One’s Neil Palmer and Antony Gough finished the championship in style coming first and third in the individual standings, with times of 1 hr 7 mins 28secs and 1 hr 8 mins 52 secs respectively.

In his first year on the testing scene, Velo-One’s Joshua Wallis finished seventh with a time of 1 hr 11 mins 42 secs, showing signs of being the one to watch in 2017.

The three riders’ combined times also gave Velo-One Cycling the LRRA 30 Team Award, adding to their winning collection of the LRRA 10 and LRRA 50, a great achievement in the team’s first year.

Paul Hutchinson continued his road race season at the Velo99 Handicap Series round, held at Rampton.

Starting within the scratch group, Paul showed fine form, narrowly missing the groups ahead on the last lap, finishing comfortably within in his own group.

Boston’s Matt Flatline, a new edition to the Velo-One Team, took part in the Le Petit Grand Prix Sportive in Lincoln, finishing the 109 mile route with a time of 5hr 42mins.

September sees the start of the Cyclo Cross season, with Velo-One riders looking forward to the first round of the Lincolnshire CycloCross League hosted by Sleaford Wheelers on Sunday, September 25.
