Eighteen riders came to the start line to contest the final Kelso Wheelers Cycling Club time trial of the season over five miles last week.
Battling against a headwind, and at times a crosswind, some excellent times were posted, with more than half the field setting pbs.
Dave Burgher powered to win in a course record time of 10.57, breaking the old record by 58 seconds. Not to be outdone, Oscar Onley set a youths’ course record of 13.01 to complete his quest of holding every distance record on the calendar.
A feature of the campaign this year has been the way other youths’ section members have been edging closer to Oscar’s times – it augurs well for next season.
