PEEL District Cycling Club members took to the hills behind Serpentine Dam for the hilly time trial which marks the end of winter road racing season and the start of the summer time trial and criterium season.
The riders started at the dam and immediately started climbing, before continuing an undulating course along Kingsbury Drive towards the lookout. They then turned around and found what was a gentle tailwind made the return leg challenging.
Shayne Dimmer was the fastest rider, completing the 25km kilometre course in just more than 40 minutes on a time trial bike. Two seconds slower was visiting English hill climber Lewis Keightley on a regular road bike. Third was Colin Rose, who took the honours on age standard time. Peter Carlin was second and Conor Leahy third on age standard time.
Time trials continue this Wednesday at 4.30pm at Hopelands. The criterium season starts on November 22 in Pinjarra. For more information about the new season or the full results of the hilly time trial, visit pdcc.asn.au.
