PERFECT conditions allowed a record number of riders break the one-hour barrier when competing in Rugby RCC's 25-mile time-trial on the K10/25B course.
A total of 15 out of the 42 riders finished in under one hour but the quickest of those was David Kiernan who took victory in 54-53.
The K11/25B course, incorporating two loops of the A45 between the Thurlaston and Ryton islands, has proved a popular alternative to the hillier two-lap Princethorpe course and the times were made even more impressive when it transpired the timekeepers had mistakenly used an incorrect road marking at the start, subsequently confirmed by one rider's GPS data indicating the course was 135-yards too long.
Kiernan was closely followed by Tim Hastie and David Newton on a night when all riders made it back to the finish, although it transpired Kate Vanloo had gone off course and Jonathan Jordan only completed one loop of the A45 after a knee problem.
The handicap was won by the improving Beverley Masterman, followed by Collette Marshall and Kirstie Nichols as their form continues to head in the right direction.
Full results - David Kiernan 54-53, Tim Hastie 55-44, David Newton 55-54, Eliot Blundell 57-20, Stuart Hopkins 57-20, Adrian Tayles 57-45, Bob Cooper 57-58, Craig McKee 58 28, Luke Markham 58-35, David Gillett 58-36, Matt Jones 58-53, Peter Wright 59-22, Phil Scott 59-23, Mike McCann 59-53, Russell Green 59-59, David Kimberley 1-0-10, Simon Mitchell 1-1-2, Marina Bloom 1-2-43, Chris Parsons 1-2-56, Ray Dyke 1-3-19, Mike Smallwood 1-3-24, Peter Timmins 1-5-15, Lewis Jones 1-5-37, David Tyler 1-6-23, Dave Gunby 1-7-17, Rob Tyler 1-7-22, Rob Robson 1-9-19, Tamara Hardman 1-9-31, Richard Boyd 1-11-36, Mike Bloom 1-11-57, Stephen Guild 1-14-04, Angus Gordon 1-14-26, Kirstie Nichols 1-15-12, Mark Simpson 1-15-15, Jane Needham 1-15-26, Alan James 1-15-59, Chris Lodge 1-17-00, Beverley Masterman 1-17-19, Naomi Leugs 1-23-12, Colette Marshall 1-29-00.
