The Northants time trial series started with the familiar 18 miles around the Middleton based circuit near Corby.

With heavy morning rain making the course a little more challenging than normal with the additional muddy sections it was Simon Pitchford who once again led the Fenland Clarion challenge in sixth place with a time of 44:25.

He was well supported by Phil Ackerman (46:20), Ian Waddilove (47:01), Steve Maile (48:06) and first placed juvenile rider James Piercy in 51:49.
