The first record in Cuddon Cycling Marlborough’s ‘Bike HQ Summernite Series’ went to Ray Dunstan in the 16km time trial event from Wither Hills Winery on Wednesday evening.
Dunstan showing good early season form was only 11 seconds outside his Masters 45-54yrs record of 21m 22s two weeks ago. Again in very windy conditions he powered home to smash the record by 14 seconds to 21m 08s. Conway Taylor recorded a good 21m 32s which was an improvement of 44s on the first night for second place. Junior 19 rider Jono Lee wasn’t far off the pace to record 22m 12s. The sealed handicap went to Glen Herkt by 30s over Lee with another 18s to Todd Neal. Rhonda Murphy (25m 32s) was first woman home in 9th place.
