MAKING a later start to the season Leisure Lakes’ rider Vince Jenkins collected his first prize of the year.

He took third place on standard in the Bristol South CC 10-mile time trial on Saturday.

On a bumpy course on the old A38, the Leisure Lakes man clocked 24.45 to squeeze into the prize list.

“I was a bit surprised by this,” said Vince, “as the Veterans Time Trial Association (VTTA) that set the standard handicaps have just reduced my age allowance by almost four minutes.

“That in my opinion now gives the edge to the younger riders.”
