Evening 10 Series Round 4 - report
It was an all too familiar name at the top of the standings in Round 4 of the Wrekinsport Evening 10 Series as Chris Halford took another win to make it four out of four. Halford looks on unstoppable form as he opened up a commanding lead, gaining the maximum 24 points over the four rounds with a fine effort of 22 minutes 1 second, 57 seconds faster than in Round 3.
With conditions sunny and accompanied by a rare light wind coming from the advantageous east times amongst the 21-strong field were generally fast, with Dan Watts taking the runner-up spot in 22:23, 17 seconds ahead of Alex Leek.
There were excellent times posted lower down the field too with Henri Bedford smashing a huge 1:09 off his 10 mile personal best. The youngster crossed the finish line punching the air with delight as he came home in 24:21 to tie with Rich Smith for fifth spot.
The road bike category was a close call with just eight seconds separating first from second. Putting in his first appearance of the season Andy Loveland registered a fine 26:22, whilst Edward Biddle surprised himself in his first ever time trial to record a strong 26:30.
- Round 5 takes place this Wednesday at 7pm - sign on at The Woolpack, Shawbirch.
