CYCLING: Wallis in front at 10-mile time trial

Josh Wallis edged out Neil Palmer by only five seconds in Spalding’s third 10-mile time trial.

Third place went to Andy Bowser ahead of Rob McAlinden who recorded a personal best.

The turnout saw the return of a number of riders which meant some were doing their first race of the season.

Result: 1 Wallis 22:34, 2 Palmer 22:49, 3 Bowser 24:15, 5 McAlinden 24:31, 5 James Bramma 25:21, 6 Chris Bettinson 26:15, 7 Mark Hills 27:03, 8 Andy Richardson 28:35, 9 Brian Johnson 30:27, 10 Keith Seaton 31:11, 11 Velvet Bowser 32:42, 12 Adrian Thurston 34:35, 13 Bill Wood 36:36; other time - Thomas Wright (Team Onform) 24:15.

The random 2-up time trial had a poor turnout of six riders.

Result: 1 Josh Wallis & Rob Mcalinden 22:33, 2 Neil Palmer & Andy Richardson 26:21, 3 Barry Drew & Frazer Wallis 26:44.

Wallis finished in a stunning 53:27 at the Open 25-mile TT on the A52/ A15 course starting on the west side of Donington up to Quarrington roundabout and back.

He was three minutes and 43 seconds faster than second-placed rider Sam Bradley of Ellmore Factory Racing.

Wallis, along with James Bramma (1:03:02 -12th) and Barry Drew (1:11:44 - 23rd) picked up the team award.

Frazer Wallis, Andy Bowser and Bettinson took part in the Norwell Velo99 over 33 miles while Palmer had to do his required stint as a marshal.

Wallis led out the final mile - the climax of which was an uphill sprint - and picked up third place as Bowser finished in the bunch and Bettinson stayed in the group.

McAlinden finished in the bunch at the West Suffolk Wheelers Criterium at Ixworth.

Thomas Wright took part in the category 2/3 race.

Josh Wallis sprinted to sixth place in the E 1/2 category Loughborough University Campus Criterium while Tilly Gurney finished in a respectable 12th place in the ladies race.
