Andy Lewin and Paul Brownless completed this event in 5 hours and 11 minutes which placed them both in the top 30 out of 500 entrants. Mike Overton suffered a double puncture but went on to complete the course in 7 hours and 15 minutes. A special mention goes out to Mike's grandson James Stainton who despite being only 16 completed the 93 mile route in 5 hours and 42 minutes and being the second placed 16 year old.

On April 28th the TVRC held the 4th round of their regular evening time trial series.

The north easterly breeze made for some fast sections particularly along the trentside with a few of the riders posting personal best times.
