Carrington dominates Mildenall CC’s first time trial

18:12 01 May 2012

A wet and blustery evening did not deter members from taking part in Mildenhall CC’s first time-trial of the season. Richard Carrington sliced through the conditions with ease, completing the nine-and-half mile ‘Red Lodge’ circuit in just 22 minutes and 13 seconds.

With the riders setting off at minute intervals, Carrington who went off last, finished before every other rider except Nigel Wallace. Underlying how light Carrington made of the conditions, he was over two minutes ahead of Wallace, who still recorded a very respectable time of 24 minutes and 41 seconds.

Pete Clements had mixed feelings for in spite of a 28 second late start penalty, he still stopped the clock at 26 minutes and 5 seconds. Although had he not had that handicap he would have finished ahead of Marc Bowers who was the third fastest in 25 minutes and 52 seconds.

All the riders, officials and time-keeper deserve credit for turning up in such inclement weather.

This was the first time in four years that the Mildenhall Cycling Club have held time-trials on the road and is a welcome return to their competitive calendar.

RESULTS: 1. Richard Carrington (22m 13s)

2. Nigel Wallace (24m 41s)

3. Marc Bowers (25m 52s)

4. Pete Clements (26m 05s)

5. Matthew Mantle (27m 24s)

6. Mandy Burchett (29m 37s)

7. Diane Mantle (31m 07s)
