Weather fails to deter Jacklin
Just six brave riders faced the elements for the first Fenland Clarion club time trial of the season. Threats of pouring rain and 50mph winds clearly put people off, but in fact the weather was warm, wet and not too windy.
Malc Jacklin was fastest over the twelve mile event at Southwick near Oundle after opening up a 1.07 gap over youngster Jerry Norman on the first of the two laps. Jacklin's time, a respectable 30.42 in the end, after catching Norman on the second lap. Norman slipped from second place after almost coming a cropper on one of the damp corners, but managing to keep his bike upright despite losing control of his front wheel momentarily.
Second place went to Dan Hustwayte in 32.44, while veteran Chris Shaw was a surprise package finishing just 21 seconds down on his younger rival to claim third spot.
Norman finished fourth in 33.23, while Marcus Widdess was a below par 34.42 with Steve Hope riding his first bike race of the year finished in a respectable 36.02.
