SOUTHAMPTON-based Contre la Montre’s Stephen Whitewick and Julian Jenkinson took first and second places in the Bournemouth & District Women’s Cycling Association 25-mile time trial near Poole on Sunday.
Whitewick, from Totton, clocked a rapid 52-13, more than a minute quicker than his teammate who finished in 53min 17sec to beat veteran Poole Wheeler Terry Icke, who is enjoying some of the best form of his long career, by 36 seconds.
New Forest CC club champion John Heffernan was on form again following his win in the inter-club against Sotonia CC, finishing in 12th place with a sparkling 56-13.
Heffernan’s clubmate Chris Hughes was “over the moon” with a three-minute-plus improvement on his personal best to 1-00-54, while Stuart Peckham also went well with 1-02-25.

Other local times: Martin Beale (VC St Raphael/second claim NFCC) 1-00-01, Dave England from East Boldre (Crabwood CC) 1-02-54, Claire Newman from Totton (Crabwood) 1-5-41.

Bob’s best, but Hutch is much better

New Forest CC veteran Bob Jolliffe clocked a best for the past 14 years in the Lea Valley CC Middlemarkers’ 10 near Cambridge on Saturday finishing with a time of 27-41 riding fixed wheel. First place went to Henry Farrell of Welwyn Whrs with 21-04.

In Gear/Quickvit/Trainsharp RT’s Michael Hutchinson powered  to victory in the scratch race which followed the middlemarkers’ with a super-fast 18-10, which bodes well for a record eighth win in the National Championship 10 at Sawtry on Sunday.

Second place went to Joe Perrett of Ciclos Uno with 18-49 and Kevin Tye (Data Team All Stars) was third with 19-20.
