Round 1 report - Team Time Trial

The first round of the ORRL, held at Weston on the Green by BMCC, was in the format of a Team Time Trial, with 10 teams competing over 25 miles on the night. A strong headwind on the long back straight and across the top of the course meant a hard nights work for the riders.
After 10 laps, the results were in, with G.S.Henley setting the fastest time for the men's competition, with Cowley Road Condors Ladies taking the ladies prize.
