News from Mick Ives’ racing team

Barrie Mitchell, who lives at Marton, was back to something like his best when he finished an excellent second in the CTT National Circuit Time Trial Championships for riders 65 and over, held near Bovington, Dorset last Saturday.

Mitchell has only raced four times this season, due to heavy work commitments, but has kept a very high level of fitness as his performance showed.

The triangular circuit covered three times, totalling 30 miles, included a four-mile stretch that climbed steadly into a very strong head wind, and had to be ridden three times and this is where many riders struggled.
