Barnard’s victory maintains Wheelers’ run

Have your say

New recruit Andy Barnard kept up the Bourne Wheelers’ excellent record in the Evening 10 League at Greatford on Wednesday.

Barnard was fastest with 25m03s, 15 seconds ahead of Tom Comben who was second. Antony Gough completed the podium positions, clocking 25.24.

There were some big improvements further down the field despite it not being the quickest of nights with Derick Woodworth (30.04) and Michael Nation (30.43) setting personnel bests.

In the youth competition, the race acted as a dress rehearsal for the regional schoolboys’ qualifier next week.

The Bourne club fielded four riders in the National Final last year and will be hoping to improve on that number this year.
