On board a new time trial bike, Joel Lewis showed no ill effects from a road race crash two days earlier to win the opening round of Kettering’s evening 10-mile time trial series on the Lamport to Rothwell course.

Lewis clocked 24.23 for victory from Tony Brown (24.48) and Jon Thorne whose 25.55 was a personal best for the course despite a cold north-easterly wind and standing water and wet roads from heavy rain during the day.

Other times: David Robinson 26.06, Andrew Jones 30.08, Tom Perry 31.53, Mick Wood 32.36, Morgan Lewis 34.48, Bernard Smith 35.31, John Tilley 39.17. Guests: Hugh Boyle 24.51, Warren Drew (both Rockingham Forest Wheelers) 25.48, Steve Giles (Numplumz Mountain Bikers) 27.07, Graeme Cope (RFW) 28.02, Mike Harvey (North Road CC) 33.42.
