IT was another busy weekend for the North Devon Wheelers with Steve Sage and Ray Retter competing on both Saturday and Sunday.

On Saturday evening both riders were in action at Plymouth Corinthians CC?s ten-mile time trial at Buckfastleigh. In testing conditions both riders performed well.

Ray?s time of 23:34 was good enough for him to take second place in veterans? field and Steve?s time of 22:39 put him in third place just eleven seconds off the time of the winner in this close run race.

Sunday saw the two riders heading in different directions as Steve went west to take part in a 25-mile time trial near Truro while Ray headed east to Cirencester, also for a 25-mile ride.

Steve struggled in his ride after the previous evening?s race and could only manage to finish fifth while Ray put in a good ride in his veterans? best all-rounder event.
