HAINAULT Road Club's classic early season Hilly Event over 50 km produced a field of 96 competitors including top riders from Essex, London and beyond.
The forecast strong wind and heavy rain did not materialise and the dry roads resulted in another successful Hainault Roads Club promotion.
The event was won by last man off, Dean Lubin, who rides for Hainault bike shop, Ciclos Uno, in a time of 1:11.30, which was fastest at all intermediate time checks.
Hainault had some success with a fine sixth place from Ilford man Ian Short in a competitive 1:15.18.
