Cool and damp conditions didn’t deter the enthusiasm of riders on the final evening of Cuddon Cycling Marlborough’s Cycle World time trial series, when excellent times were recorded.
The course from Wither Hills Winery on New Renwick Road to Fromm Winery on Godfreys Road and return saw several personal best times and a new Masters 55-59 years record to Ryan Lock (22m 23s) lowering the old mark held by Martin Fletcher by 9 seconds. Fastest rider was Ray Dunstan (20m 26s) who was just 2 seconds outside his own Masters 50-54 years record. The minor placings went to Conway Taylor (20m 54s) and Jimmy Shapcott (21m 10s). Other notable personal best times on the night were Brent Ackroyd and junior under 17 rider Callum Saunders who both recorded 23m 01s for 7th equal place.
The sealed handicap went to Will Hart by 14 seconds to Nick Blakiston with Lock another 10 seconds back in third place.
