The penultimate round of the RTTC-Rudy Project Time Trial Series takes riders to Lincolnshire for the Lincolnshire DC Committee promotion on Sunday.
Apart from Rebecca Slack (London Dynamo) and David Dent (Wightlink-Offshore RT) all of the various current category leaders will be present.
Jeff Jones (drag2zero), who heads the Senior series with 295 points faces close rival Scott Walker (MG Décor Team Carbon Bikes), 278 points, Matt Clinton (MikeVaughan.co.uk) and Dean Robson (Somerset RC) among others.
Slack with 298 points after riding five previous events and winning four of them Julia Shaw (drag2zero), 179 points, has a chance of overtaking Slack’s score if she wins Rd 7 & Rd 8. Opposition to Shaw on Sunday comes from Clare Ella (Born to Bike) and Natasha Morrison (RLS CC).
Jack Green (VC St Raphael) defends his lead in the Espoirs class with the challenge coming from Peter Clarke (Lincoln Wheelers) while Jake Coward (Chippenham & District Wheelers), who heads the Junior category, looks to hold his lead.
The veteran class could well see a change of leadership with current leader Dent absent. The man to unseat Dent is Julian Ramsbottom (Scunthorpe Polytechnic). Dent has 293 points after his five qualifying rides while Ramsbottom has 240 after four events. Winning Sunday will give him the maximum 300 points.
John Woodburn (VC Meudon) is heading for yet another Target Time success with 295 points already under his belt.
In the Disability category Tim Challinor (Para T Cycling Squad), Colin Lynch (Macclesfield Wheelers) and Nicholas Fairfield (City RC Hull) fight it out for the points.
An added extra on Sunday is the National Handcycling TT Championships with four entrants.
Seniors and Espoirs race over 24.5 miles, Women, Juniors, Veterans, Disability and Handcyclists race over 14.1 miles.
Event headquarters are at Harby Sports Pavilion, Church Road, Harby, west of Lincoln, with the event starting at 10am.
