Round 1 - results
The season's first Northampton and District Cycling Association (N&DCA) time trial saw a number of Team Salesengine riders dust off the racing kit for this early season battle. Based on a very sporting (that means hilly) 18.7 circuit the race saw 8 riders commit to the start line. Sam Hayes was the quickest of the bunch with an impressive 44.51 that saw him sneak in to the top 20.
Best performances for the team went, by general consensus, to Steve Franklin (47.33) and Chris Rimes (47.23). Chris was making a welcome return to racing after a sabbatical. Steve was evidently capitalising on a strong winter. Chapeau chaps.
