SIX riders represented Hainault Roads Club in the Shaftesbury CC 10-mile time trial on Saturday.
A strong field of riders included 1987 Tour de France stage-winner and yellow jersey wearer Sean Yates, who set off just two minutes behind Hainault's Ian Short, but failed to catch him.
Short dug deep to produce a fine ride, crossing the line in 22 minutes and 15 seconds for 29th place overall, holding off his childhood hero, Yates, who returned a time of 21.57 to take 22nd place.
Paul Godfrey rode a fine race to record 23.43, landing him 64th position, with team-mate Mark Steers just behind in 68th place with 23.56.
