CYCLING: Duo roar to massive win

Have your say

Harry Bellars and Neil Palmer eased to victory at the first round of Spalding Cycling Club’s new two-man ten mile time trial meets.

Having bossed the lion’s share of the individual time trial league events at Pode Hole, it was no surprise to see Palmer once again at the top of the standings.

He and young gun Bellars finished the course in 23.04 minutes – which was over a minute clear of the father and son team of Ian and Ollie Fensom (24.12).

The two-man meets are replacing Spalding’s 17 mile time trial races this year.
