Velo-One riders Justin Parr, Neil Palmer and Joshua Wallis finished just outside the top 10 in the Bourne Wheelers road race (British Cycling Category 3/4) at Castle Bytham near Grantham.

The course made for good racing, with Parr making an aggressive last-lap attack, breaking away from the lead group, only to be caught by the chasing group.

The three Velo-One riders finished strongly in the leading main group.

Paul Hutchinson finished his road race season in style at the final Velo 99 Handicap at Rampton.

Starting in the scratch group, he broke away from his group with two other riders – working together to pass 
earlier starting groups.

A hill top finish was contested by five other riders with Hutchinson finishing fourth overall and second in his group.

Palmer entered the final time trial of the Velo-One season at the Bert Christian Trophy 25 Mile TT.

Clocking a maximum speed of 51mph, he posted a time of 52mins 19secs, giving him a top-three finish.

As the road and time trial season comes to an end, focus moves to cyclo cross with riders looking to compete in the Lincolnshire League.

Round one was hosted by Sleaford Wheelers with Adam Ellis and Oliver Carr representing Velo-One.
