Team Swift came out in force to tackle Bridlington Cycling Club’s open hilly 10-mile time trial at Burton Fleming.

The riders where met with a strong wind and rain at the start of the event, standing water on the course made areas a little tricky on the narrow country roads.

Team Swift’s father-and-son duo Mike and 16-year-old Lewis Scott didn’t have far to travel to this event.

Warming up for the event was put off by most of the riders due to the unseasonal driving rain.

The pre-race favourite Mark Wolstenholme from Team Swift lived up to billing and raced to victory in a time of 23.02 beating nearest rival Bridlington’s own Andy Askwith in to second with 23.47.

Team Swift also took away the fastest team award along with fastest junior award for Scarborough based rider Lewis Scott in a time of 26.55 to finish the event in 12th place and took away a medal and certificate for his efforts.

Mike Scott clocked 26.21 to finish in 11th place.

A few days earlier Mike had finished third in Scarborough Paragon’s 25 mile time trial setting a time of 1.02.42.

The next open event for Mike will be the Drighlington Cycling Club’s 10-mile time trial near Walshford.

Also on that day Lewis will be taking part in the GHS Yorkshire district championships open 10-mile time trial on the same course in Walshford, where his 12-year-old sister Eli will make her open cycling debut riding for Scarborough Paragon Cycling Club.
