Wrekinsport Evening 10 No.13 2018
Another week another win for Chris Halford as the Evening 10 Series winner showed just why he has won the competition in Round 13. Halford stopped the watch on 22 minutes 15 seconds in tough conditions, coping best with a strong headwind which blighted the hardest leg of the course, the climb to Cotwall Bank.
Halford was 29 seconds ahead of the nearest competition, which came from RAF CA rider Dan Watts, who posted an excellent 22:45 on a road bike. Halford's nearest competition for club honours came from newly-signed Rob Jackson, fourth in 23:48 33 seconds behind Cotswold Veldrijden rider Ian Pollard.
In the Non-aero division a rider trying out for the first time surprised many by taking the maximum six points on offer in this Series, with Richard Howes making an impressive debut of 26:18. But Peter Mulloy did enough to seal the Silver medal thanks to the five points gained for his 27:44 effort. And there was a welcome return for Wrekinsport's oldest member, making his first racing appearance of the season. 85 year-old Terry Collins ended his evening after crossing the line in 45:11.
