Terrible conditions in the second round of the Beds Road Club Evening League couldn’t stop CC Luton’s Ashley Cox from triumphing over the 11.3-mile course in 25.16mins, with the home club’s Simon Norman second in 26.31mins.

Elsewhere, in much better weather, Gill Fullen completed the 70.3-mile Ironman competition in Majorca and finished seventh non-pro lady, and won her age group.

Closer to home Simon Norman and David Olney again braved torrential rain, cold temperatures and a gale on Saturday afternoon to compete in the Bossard Wheelers Open on the F15/10 course.

Norman blasted round the course in 21.49mins to come second overall, and Olney worked hard for his 23.58mins to finish 14th overall.

Meanwhile, Jon Friend rode his first 50-mile time-trial, the Norland F1/50, and finished in 1.58.50hrs.
