Five Velo-One Cycling riders battled wind and rain at Sleaford Wheelers’ annual charity 10-mile time trial in aid of Cancer Research UK.

The popular early event saw an incredible full field of 150 riders start in one-minute intervals on the undulating A15 road from Sleaford to Osbournby.

Making their debut rides for V1 were Antony Gough, David Anderson and Scott Francis.

Bourne-based Gough, a seasoned tester, soon found his form – finishing 22nd with a time of 24mins 16 secs.

Anderson and Francis, both new to competitive racing, finished 81st and 86th with times of 28:16 and 28:56 respectively.

An unfortunate puncture in the last miles coupled with some early season rustiness saw Dan Carr finish 70th with a time of 27:42.

Spalding’s Neil Palmer continued to show great form with his second podium of the season, finishing third with a time of 22:51 – a great achievement against a field of strength and depth.
