John Johnston took the honours in the second time trial of the Matlock Cycling Club season at Sheldon on Saturday.

Johnston took the outright win this week with a time of 13.56 and increased his lead at the top of the points competition at this very early stage.

He was closely followed by Chris Green (14.33) in his first time trial this year and leading lady was Christine Howard with 19.16.

After numerous technical problems, the tandem pairing of Richard Thoday and Bradley Gauntlett finished in 23.03.

This coming Saturday (February 28) sees the club version of its 25-mile hilly time trial run as a forerunner of the open event a week later. Full details of all events and times can be found on the Matlock CC website
