    BE-WELL TIME TRIAL No 7

    Those who decided to watch the football instead of cycling at Aslackby missed a good night despite a strong wind and spots of rain a tailwind on the long leg to Billingborough produced many best times of the season
    Mark Botteley won in a NEW COURSE RECORD of 21m59s and Hugh Valentine-Ketchum managed a personel best time despite crashing on the last corner!!!
    Mark maintains his lead in the League event but with Martin Slater electing not to ride yours truly takes over in the Handicap event (not surprising as I do the Handicaping!!who said fix??)
    for all times go to TT RESULTS for full results and league / handicap standings go to DOWNLOADS
    next event Fenland Clarion Hereward League at Helpston entries to me no later than Fri 20th -thanks
