Bex finished 4th in the Merlin Cycles Classic National Series 2, Time Trial event for road bikes. The 41 mile hilly time trial event in the Midlands, was open to riders on a regular road bike, no tri bars and no disc wheels. The 41 miles included a couple of 13% climbs to break up rythm and make it even trickier.
