Ian Guilor (Mapperley CC) and Wendy Gooding (Team Bottrill) were the men’s and women’s winners respectively at the Melton Olympic 25-mile time trial in Nottinghamshire on Saturday.
Guilor clocked 49.03 to take the win by more than two minutes on the day from Sean Vincent (Team Bottrill), while Neal Parkin (Team Bottrill) was third.
His time was more than five minutes quicker than the time he last rode the A25/34 course back in May when Guilor was 12th in the VTTA Notts and East Midlands 25.
The A46-based course starts just south of East Stoke and takes riders down to Newark and Farndon before finishing on the approach back to East Stoke.
Guilor last tasted victory in June when he won the Bolsover and District 10, while he was also victorious in the Witham Wheelers 10 just three days before that.
Gooding’s win is the latest in a string of good performances from the 53-year-old from Oundle in Northamptonshire.
She was the fastest woman at the National Clarion Championships staged over a 25-mile course by Fenland Clarion on July 1, and also won Peterborough CC’s 10-mile event in May. And April saw her finish as first female in the VTTA East Anglia 25.
