He said: “I set off feeling really good. The road was really bumpy in places and a big pot hole which I hit.

“The first leg went really well. I hit a top speed of 39.4 mph and an average of 29.5mph. For the home leg I had to slow down for four cars which didn’t help.

“I found the return leg hard, only averaging 25.8mph and the last mile to the finish was hard going up a slight hill on the slip road to the finish.”

With a time of 21:41 and average of 27.8mph he finished in sixth place.

l A very humid and hot Wednesday summer’s evening saw 20 KLCC riders compete for club points.

The time trial took place with the risk of thunderstorms looming and with no real rain until the event was underway, there was a sense of urgency to finish the 10-mile time trial before more storms appeared.

David Procter of KLCC came over the line convincingly in a time of 21.48 followed by James Senter and Simon Hardy.
