NICKY Hitchens and Dafydd Hous­ton won Peter­bor­ough Cy­cling Club’s an­nual twoman time trial by al­most three min­utes on the old A1 course near Stil­ton.

In over­cast and very chilly con­di­tions, they won by 2.43 from Oliver Lav­er­ack and Bel­gian Christophe De­moulin.

Eye pro­fes­sional Steve Lampier was in ac­tion for guests IG Sigma Sport and led them to an im­pres­sive 30-minute clock­ing.

Re­sults - 1 Nick Hitchens/dafydd Hous­ton 35.40; 2 Oliver Lav­er­ack/christophe De­moulin 38.23; 3 Marc Ab­bot/andy Baird 40.22; 4 Sean Mur­phy/tom West-robin­son 45.31; 5 John Sav­ill/bill Platts 46.56; 6 Steve Brooks/ Dave Stan­bridge 47.24; 7 John Se­mer­aro/joe Ip­polito 52.17. a re­spectable time of 64.05 on his de­but at the dis­tance.

IN-FORM duathlon in­ter­na­tional Paul Lunn won the open­ing race of Fen­land Clar­ion’s pop­u­lar mid­week Blue­bell 10-mile time trial se­ries on a chilly and windy evening on the Help­ston cir­cuit.

Lunn started the sea­son in the same ex­cel­lent form he showed last sea­son to end up the fastest on the night with 22.15.

Un­luck­i­est rider of the night was 12 year-old Tom Ever­ton in his first time trial. He set off full of en­thu­si­asm and when he caught sight of a rider in front of him he gave chase.

Un­for­tu­nately the rider wasn’t tak­ing part in the race and ended up tak­ing the young­ster a mile of­f­course. Un­de­terred he re­joined the course but with all chance of a re­spectable time long since gone he could only man­age 53.38.

Re­sults - 1 Paul Lunn 22.15; 2 Martin Jones 22.41; 3 Si­mon Pitch- ford 23.16; 4 Jaap Flik­weert 24.11; 5 Chris Rimes 24.12; 6 Malc Jack­lin 24.29; 7 Steve Wal­ters 25.35; 8 Bert Amos 26.51; 9 Lind­say Clarke 26.55; 10 Sam Wid­dess 28.13; 11 Keith Bowes 28.38; 12 Tom Phillips 29.12; 13 Karl Owen 29.40; 14 Andy Pitch­ford 29.58; 15 An­nette Wyld 30.34; 16 Ge­orge Pro­drick 30.46; 17 Steve Tyler 32.31; 18 Mark Loan 32.53; 19 Tom Ever­ton 53.38.

Guests: Dar­ren Rus­sell 26.48; Jim Robin­son 24.06; Pippa Lawton 33.01; Josh Lunn 31.26.

THE fourth round of the Northants Road Race Se­ries proved dis­ap­point­ing for Fen­land Clar­ion.

The three-lap course around the Vil­lage of Old favoured the early groups and the only Clar­ion rider mak­ing any im­pact was Phil Wilkinson with a fine sixth place in his first road race ap­pear­ance for his new club.

The re­sult saw Clar­ion drop down to fifth in the team com­pe­ti­tion, ef­fec­tively end­ing their hopes of win­ning the se­ries.

In the Cam­bridge 10-mile time trial Mal­colm Church recorded 24.12 with Keith Kin­sey clock­ing 28.57.

The Wis­bech 25-mile event saw Si­mon Pitch­ford lead the lo­cal chal­lenge in 58.43 with Malc Jack­lin clock­ing 62.27, Church 64.03, Bill Law 68.04 with Ann Bar­rett mak­ing a pleas­ing de­but at the dis­tance in 73.07.

BLUE­BELL WIN­NER: Paul Lunn won Fen­land Clar­ion’s mid­week time trial.
