Buffham speaks home on Spalding Cycling Club time trial, despite testing weather conditions
Kieran Buffham showed the advantage of riding from an aero position when he won the latest Spalding Cycling Club time trial.
In difficult weather conditions, a couple of riders made the decision to use road bikes.
But the advantage gained from the aero position on a time trial bike showed when Josh Wallis (24.22) found himself second (24.22) for the first time this season, pipped by Kieran Buffham (23.22).
Close on Josh’s heels was father Frazer Wallis in 24.22, while guest rider James Davy (time trial bike) managed 29.13, 1.53 faster than Andrew Gurney (road bike) whose 31.06 was around five minutes slower than he would normally achieve.
The next round on Tuesday features a ten-mile ride for the Fisherman Arms Handicap Trophy.
. The midweek social riders managed sunny but breezy rides during a 50-mile loop to Castor, followed by a 45-mile loop to Little Bytham.
