Ten riders attacked the 10mile course at Horsham on Wednesday with renewed energy after dangerous weather forced cancellation the previous week.

In a successful ride, two competitors improved by over 20 seconds on their season PBs, and a new Time Trial recruit was inspired to sign up to his first open TT.

First rider home was Paul Ryeford with a time of 21.54, making his presence felt on his first appearance on the course this year.

Second in was Jonny Bradbourne, with 23.33, closely followed by handicap winner Steve Bryant who was 25seconds ahead of his previous best. A close second on handicap was Richard Bailey, who was 24 seconds faster.

Clocking 24.22, and third on handicap with a 12 second improvement, retired Ironman Paul Dewey grabbed himself at 24.22, before promptly returning home to sign up for his first open 25 mile TT on 7thJuly.

The author herself has been working too many late Wednesday evenings to show her face, but hopes to be back at Horsham in a few weeks time once the summer cycling seasons dies down (?!).

Congratulations to everyone for riding, and special thanks to John Eg for his dedication, and Maurice Brennan for his debut as pusher-off.
