Hugo takes 5th place at the Victoria CC 10.2

Saturday morning saw the team return in numbers to round 2 of one of the friendliest and best organised series events of the season; the Victoria CC 10.2 mile time trial just outside Saffron Walden.

Rain and a hard headwind on the climbs back from the turn greeted our six riders, but none of this put off Hugo Hocknell who stormed to 5th place with a course PB 23:51.
Also clocking a course PB, and taking honours of second fastest for the team, was Steve Robinson who finished in 25:28 to take 17th place. After 2 rounds Hugo is holding 2nd place overall in the series and Steve is in 5th place.

Third counter for the team was Rik Plamer who improved substantially on his May ride to record 26:19 for 23rd on the day.  Rik now stands in 9th place in the series. As in the May event, the team came within a handful of seconds of taking the team prize, this time being edged out by Chelmer CC by just 23 seconds.

Rik grimaces and wishes his TT bike was back from being repaired!
David Ledgerton was next up for the team with 28:38, closely followed by Roy Robinson who debuted on the course with 30:51 and Stuart Hocknell who came home in 33:22.
