RUGBY RCC's third 25-mile time-trial of the season saw David Newton claim victory by just six seconds from Tim Hastie.
The two-lap K10/25A - Frankton course is notorious for the climb out of Princethorpe but Newton overcame that and the rainy conditions to win in 56-25.
Hywel Davies, making his first appearance of the season, set the fastest time of the evening as a private entrant with a 55-57 but the standout performance of the event came from 15-year-old
Ryan Kenworthy who recorded 1-02.16 for ninth place and first place in the handicap.
Hastie retains his lead in the points table, with Gary Howes maintaining his improvement and pulling further ahead in the handicap competition.
Full results: David Newton 56-25, Tim Hastie 56-31, Craig McKee 57-45, Richard Bray 59-27, Mike McCann 1-0-09, Matt Jones 1-0-23, Phil Scott 1-0-33, Peter Belfield 1-1-11, Ryan Kenworthy 1-2-16, David Kimberley 1-3-02, Ray Dyke 1-3-17, Martin Orrill 1-3-37, Gary Howes 1-3-54, Marina Bloom 1-4-37, Tamara Hardman 1-5-35, Simon Brand 1-6-07, Peter Timmins 1-6-23, Keith Hirons 1-6-57, Mark Harris 1-7-33, Dave Gunby 1-8-46, Richard Kenworthy 1-8-52, Simon Bayliss 1-9-13, Stephen Guild 1-10-35, Mark Simpson 1-12-35, Rob Robson 1-13-07, Mike Bloom 1-13-47, Chris Lodge 1-14-31, Jane Needham 1-16-38, Kirstie Nichols 1-18-20, Kate Vanloo 1-23-00, Naomi Leugs 1-23-48, Colette Marshall 1-30-11.
