Ben Instone National 10 2008

SURREY time trial ace Ben Instone showed he is already reaping the rewards of a hard winter?s training when he slashed more than two minutes off the old course record when he won the Central Sussex CC 17.5-mile event at Steyning, West Sussex, on Saturday.

Instone clocked 35-23 to win the event by 1-38 from rival Pete Tadros, the In Gear rider who had himself broken the old course record but held it for just 2-22 before Instone stopped the clock in impressive fashion.
