THERE was a club one-two for Welwyn Wheelers in the 13 mile North Road time trial held near Cambridge.

Welwyn youth riders Andrew Street and Tom Gallagher took first and second place on a warm and breezy morning.

The win helps Andrew in his campaign to retain the time trial Millennium Trophy for a series of local events, which he won last year.

Andrew Porter rode the senior 25 mile event on the sporting course, recording a respectable time of 1 hour 11 minutes 27 seconds.

The majority of the senior riders elected to ride the team time trial event near Stansted promoted by the Victoria CC.

Conditions were warm but breezy and all the riders had their work cut out battling into cross-headwinds on a rolling 10.2 mile course.

The three Welwyn Wheelers teams were roundly beaten by the trio from Cambridge University CC, who recorded an impressive time of 21 mins 37 secs on what is a tough course.

Joanne Knight rode the solo event, recording 27 mins 54 secs to be the second fastest lady and beat a number of the male competitors.
