Meanwhile, Sudbury’s own TT took place on the Acton circuit in near perfect conditions for time trialling with 24 riders trying to make most of the conditions. Davies won in a personal best time of 19:00 closely followed by Rush 19:06 with Andy Kennedy third in 19:18, while Graham Buckles improved his time by almost one minute in an impressive 22:36.
