Hugo takes the honours in round 1 of the Northampton & District Hilly

Dry but blustery conditions greeted the six members of the team who took to the start line for the first of the ten rounds of the Northampton & District Series.

Ever competitive both within the team and against many local rivals, this event served up a challenging 18.5 mile hilly route for the riders to battle around.

fastest for the team was Hugo Hocknell who clocked a superb 44:47 to take 15th place overall and bag some big points in the individual and team competitions. Hot on his heels was Sam Hayes who finished in 45:01 for 18th place.

A bit further back was Stephen Mavin who suffered some mechanical problems but still finished in 48:14 for 33rd and just 1 second back Steve Robinson who was hit with a bout of cramp half a mile from the line and lost time but still recorded 48:15.

In his first event of the year Lyndon Lewis rode strongly to finish in 1:01:01 and not far behind was Stuart Hocknell with 1:06:31.

Round 2 of the series is just 2 weeks away, and it looks like there will be some cracking racing through the season with more members of the team waiting in the wings to get started.
