Spalding’s Neil Palmer has claimed the first podium finish for Velo-One Cycling.

In his first race of the year, Palmer took part in the Retford & District 10-mile TT.

The hard training over the winter paid off, finishing second with a time of 21m 3 secs at an average speed of over 28mph.

Meanwhile, Nick Millward finished 10th in the Sleaford Wheelers Early 10-mile TT with a time of 27m 23 secs.

V1 riders Madeline Verdegaal, Adam Ellis and Justin Parr travelled to the Milton Keynes Bowl for round two of the Spring Circuit Series.

Despite strong racing, all three riders were involved in incidents at the latter stages of their races, pushing them just outside the top 10.

On a positive note, this was Parr’s first-ever road race.

Against a field of more than 70 riders, finishing just outside the top 10 was a great achievement.

Velo-One Cycling launched in December with riders from across Lincolnshire.

As well as competing, they are an official supporter of the type1 diabetes charity JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation).

The aim is to increase awareness through sport and raise funds for research.

Although primarily a race team, Velo-One will also look to organise events from rides to evening entertainment through their social arm Le Grupetto.
