THE A5 Rangers Cycling Club’s Trophy 25-mile time-trial was narrowly won by Ian Mead.

Ian was just nine seconds ahead of Ian Ellis while the improving Chris Mason took third place.

The competitors had to endure a torrential downpour on the return leg from the Sulgrave turn.

The heavy rain forced the riders to slow somewhat through the narrow twisty roads through Moreton Pinkney, Canons Ashby and Adstone.

The full result was: Ian Mead 1.03.13 hours, Ian Ellis 1.03.22, Chris Mason 1.07.50, Rob Griffin 1.09.32, Murray Kirton 1.10.07, Mike McGillion 1.12.08, Trevor Parrish 1.12.10, Derek Moyle 1.14.32, Dave Stockley 1.17.16, Keith Gelder 1.17.29.

Other results: Icknield Road Club 25 mile TT: Ian Mead 1.00.55, Murray Kirton 1.06.28.
