The Spalding CC 27 Mile Hilly Time Trial took place on Sunday with Velo-One Cycling Team riders Neil Palmer, Joshua Wallis and Dan Carr in action.

It was a testing early season event with more than 1,000ft of climbing, not allowing riders to get in a rhythm.

Neil continued to show great form, finishing fourth overall and first Veteran with a time of 1hr 0min 18sec.

It was Joshua’s first ever time trial but he showed that he is one to watch over the coming season with a time of 1.04.11.

Dan started his season with a time of 1.13.57.

On Saturday, Velo-One riders Madeline Verdegaal, Adam Ellis and Justin Parr raced at round three of the Milton Keynes Bowl Spring Circuit Series.

The Bowl this year has been stronger and faster than ever, a clear indication of the increasing popularity of cycling in the UK.

In the women’s British Cycling E/1/2/3/4 race, a group of eight riders broke away, but unfortunately Madeleine missed the break but contested the sprint finish with the main group in which she finished 11th.

Damp conditions in the men’s British Cycling Cat 4 race tested Justin’s bike handling skills in only his second ever race, finishing top 20.

The British Cycling Cat 2/3 race saw a field of 70-plus riders lapping the circuit at an average of 25mph. Adam finished within the main group, finishing top 20.
