Velo-One rider Neil Palmer secured second place in the Lincolnshire Road Riding Association 25-mile Time Trial Championships.

Held on the C25/2 course – starting and finishing at Frithville – a total of 75 riders competed for individual and team awards.

Palmer posted a time of 54mins 34secs while just outside of the medals was team-mate Antony Gough, finishing fourth overall in 55:35.

Joshua Wallis recorded a time of 1.01:08 after riding an extended course due to a wrong turning.

The combined times for the three riders provisionally places Velo-One second in the team award, 12 seconds behind winners Sleaford Wheelers.

The final LRRA event of the year is the 30-mile Time Trial Championships on September 4.
