So close for Walker at Barton Open 10

Scunthorpe Poly’s time trial duo Rich Walker and Rich Robinson were in time trial action again at the weekend at Barton Wheelers Open 10 mile Time Trial held on Saturday 9th May 2015.

On a blustery afternoon, the rain cleared and the course dried up for 56 strong field of riders.

First off for Poly was Rich Robinson, number 10 at 14:10 posting a time of 21:35, eventually good enough for 5th place.

But the talking point of the afternoon came after the rest of the top seeds had finished.

Off number 40 at 14:40 Walker had posted a rapid time of 21:20, but missed out on the win by just one second from Ian Dalton (Cherry Valley RT) 21:19, tying for second place with two other riders! Never has a race been so close.
