That said Paul Read's early season form continued on Sunday as he posted 56.16 for a very hilly 21 mile SCCU Sporting Time Trial. As I headed for the very uphill finish line Paul blazed a trail past me through the lashing wind and rain.

The course from the A25 at Bletchingley, down to Outwood Mill and back, twice, provided some exhilarating and very pacey downhill sections with the wind behind and the roads soaking wet and very slick. At the turn in Outwood a hefty north-easterly combined with some sharp climbs to make for a really testing return to the village.

3 other Redhill riders took the start line. Duncan Murdoch posted 1.03.42 and Geoff Clifton 1.04.28. Keith Reed started but was forced to retire.
