Wrekinsport CC Club 10 No.7 2018
Forgetting his race shoes didn't stop Chris Halford's winning ways as Wrekinsport's fast man not only took victory wearing trainers - he scored a course personal best too in Round 7 of the Wrekinsport Evening 10 Series. Halford looked to have a severe disadvantage from his mistake but set a blistering 21 minute 53 second ride to take victory by 1:14 and move into a commanding 12 point lead in the Series.
Halford's nearest challenges came from a pair of visiting riders both competing in their first time trial of 2018 but showed their legs held the memory of how to turn the pedals swiftly, with Nova Raiders' Tim Beardmore runner-up in 23:07 and Cotswold Veldrijden's Ian Pollard 23 seconds back in third.
Seven of the 25-strong field were in competition on road bikes, with Chris Staples finishing best placed on 24:14. Best of the Wrekinsport riders was Ian Bond, moving into the lead of the Non-aero Series thanks to a fine effort of 26:17.
