Flex-tech Ettridge team take top spots in Local time trial competition.
A trio of the Grimsby based cycle race team Flex-tech Ettridge cycles competed in the Lindsey roads organised hilly time trial cycling event on Tuesday evening.
The event one of a series run by the local club was on the renowned 9.5 mile lung busting course taking in several steep climbs around Swallow, Rothwell and Beelsby.
First off around the course was Flex Ettridge tech rider Dave Robinson who set a blistering pace and set down what turned out to be an unbeatable marker for the rest of the field by completing the difficult course in 23minutes and 56 seconds and was the only rider on the night able to get around the course in under 24 minutes.
Second place on the night was another Flex-tech rider and local fire fighter Andy Dennis who completed the test in 24mins 55secs.
Flex tech rider Graham Briggs who has just returned following a week cycling in southern Spain powered his way around in 25minutes 49 seconds to take fourth place in the event.
The local Flex-tech team have been working hard on the bikes during the winter to get fit with regular training sessions of over 70 miles; results so far look like this training has been worthwhile.
