A warm evening saw the riders on the 15-miler but the south easterly wind made it a little tough at times. That didn’t stop the first two in the men’s race posting PB’s though, as both Scorey and Dom Blythe put together quick rides of 33.54 and 35.01, over a minute off his previous for Dom to take silver.

That left three riders battling for third, with Dougie Robertson producing the extra push needed in the return leg to post 36.12 for that medal.

Mark held her good form from recent triathlons to take yet another women’s title with a good 39.11 and Wanda Field then Michelle Highfield rounding up the podium.

New member Paul Graham rounded off the PB’s for the night.

Michelle and Jami Blythe tried some further racing at the weekend, travelling to York for a Go-Ride criterium, their first time in a bunch race. Fast from the off found both getting a real feel for the race and although Jami found herself near the back of the field it was certainly great fun, even more so for Michelle, who managed to take an excellent 4th place, not a bad result for a first time out.

This week’s race is a 25-miler, with riders meeting on Thursday at Hutton crossroads, 6.30 for a 7pm start.
