RIDING his first event of the season Leisure Lakes rider Vince Jenkins managed to squeeze into the prize list.

He took third place on standard out of a field of 96 in the VTTA 10-mile time trial at Tuxford, near Newark, on Saturday.

Averaging more than 25 mph the Leisure Lakes man was able to take advantage of the good conditions to record a time of 23.30 that beat the standard time for his age by 8.45.

“You never know how you are really going until your first race,” said Vince, “so this was a good start and now we have to build on it.”
