Oscar Onley broke the course record

Kelso Wheelers made a rare incursion across the border for their 12-mile time trial to Carham Hall last week.

The youths continue to set a high standard, despite, or perhaps because of, the summer holidays.

A new youths’ course record was set by Oscar Onley (33.28) alongside pbs from the other four finishers. Two youths chose what is generally acknowledged as a very difficult course for their debut into time trialling. Harry Graves (41.43) put in an impressive performance, but unfortunately Sam Prentice encountered problems on the outward leg and had to withdraw.

Not to be too overshadowed, the seniors recorded four pbs of their own.

Senior times: M. Burgher 27.58 pb; J. Smith 28.32; S. Gaunt 29.49 pb; D. Richardson 30.10; R. Connell 30.36; G. Ford 31.21; A. Ker 35.04; D. Whitecross 35.17 pb; J. Sinton 36.22 pb; R. Smith 36.22; S. Onley 37.28.

Youths: O. Onley 33.28 pb and course record; B. Simpson 34.44 pb; D. Easson 37.56 pb; H. Graves 41.43 pb; R. Easson 46.58 pb.
