George Fox powered to victory in the open category at the Kettering CC Mark Bell Memorial 15-mile time trial on Sunday morning, while Lauren Creamer finished as the fastest female.

Riding for George Fox Cycling Solutions Club, Fox set an unmatched 29-10 to live up to his billing as pre-race Spindata favourite, finishing ahead of second place Ryan Witchell (Royal Leamington Spa CC) who recorded 29-45, whilst a time of 30-01 helped Jack Patmore secure third spot.

“I'd just like to thank Andy King and Kettering CC for another great promotion and putting the race on,” said winner Fox.

“Andy is one of the most selfless cyclists I know, sacrificing much of his own racing to give others the opportunity to race on courses where we wouldn't otherwise get the chance.”

In the women’s category, senior rider Creamer clocked 33-02 to earn top prize ahead of host club rider Maria Cayford in 40-25, while Lynne Scofield of Rockingham Forest Wheelers, the only rider to complete the course on a road bike, finished in third with 45-36.

For Creamer, this was her third victory this season after coming top in the female category at A5 Rangers CC 17-mile time trial, VTTA London & Home Counties 10-mile time trial and the North Road CC 25-mile time-trial.

Mark Hamer (Legato Racing Team) topped the standings on the veteran leaderboard with a time of 31-06, with Danny Metherell (VéloElite RC) finishing just under a minute behind in 31-59 to earn second place, while Frazer Wallis (Spalding CC) sealed third spot on the podium with 32-13.

This 15-mile event, run on the N7/15 course, starts on Doddington Road just east of Earls Barton where it heads along the A45 before u-turning at the Great Billing Interchange to finish adjacent to Whites Nursery on Northampton Road.
