Oxonian's Malcolm Rose pipped Mid Oxon’s Eamon Deeley in a thrilling finish to the Beeline League Cycle Time Trial, hosted by Oxford City RC.
An outward bound headwind made it hard work to the turn on the Witney bypass course.
But it was Rose, who adapted best to come home first in 21mins 17secs, just a second ahead of Deeley, with Oxonian’s Gavin Tilson third in 21.38.
Oxonian’s Aimee Fenwick led home the women in an impressive 24.31.
