Course: K11/10B - Braunston
It was a win for Dave Kiernan in Rugby RCC’s midweek event, with rival Tim Hastie taking his turn to to help the ‘start team’.
For once the Braunston course lived up to its expectations, with warm conditions and a SE breeze on the outward leg instead of the usual cross-wind which slows riders both out and back.
As weather conditions improve and riders’ gain fitness their times are coming down and many PBs were registered.
The handicap results were mostly dominated by newer members who are carving minutes off their previous times, but Gary Howes still leads the handicap table.

Another fantastic week’s race results for Team Jewson—M.I.Racing in events across the UK.
Team Boss, and ex World Champion, Mick Ives (Baginton) Team Jewson MI Racing—Thule, was back to something like his best on Sunday, following weeks of knee problems.
Mick won the 70 plus race at, round 4 of the ‘Percy Stallard’ National Road Race series held over the very tough Bridgenorth, Cleebury Mortimer circuit, and in doing so beat all but seven of the riders 60 and over.
The race split to bits early on, as rider after rider attacked on the tough climbs, with 30 miles to go Ives caught team mate Martin Hackley (Dunchurch) and waited for his other team mate Derreck woodings, to link up, to form part of a strong chase group.
They stayed together to the finish, with Hackley finishing 4th in the over 60 race, crossing the line ahead of Ives with Woodings finishing two places behind and 2nd over 70.
Ives now leads the National Series, which he has won a record four times, and Woodings is in third position, Hackley is third in the 60 plus series.
