THE Easter Bank Holiday saw Hainault Roads Club out in force at the Eastern Counties Cycling Association-promoted 25-mile time trial.
Club champion, Rob Dulson, powered his way to 11th place to record a time of one hour, two minutes and 43 seconds.
The same course, starting in Leaden Roding, also catered for a team time trial event in which the staunch Hainault two-up team of Brian Ward and Roger Pimm bettered their personal best time by one second, crossing the line in 1.04.45 to take third place.
The following day, a trio of Hainault riders took part in the Lea Valley CC 25-mile time trial starting in Ugley, Essex.

The weather favoured the riders, but they had to contend with poor road surfaces on this sporting course, though an in-form Ian Short rode a great race to finish 10th with a time of 57.23, with team-mate Howard Staunton recording 59.37.
Mark Steers competed in the medium gear category, riding a 72-inch fixed-wheel machine, and finished in a commendable time of 1.04.07.
