Barry's Back and Matthew nears sub-20

The second instalment of the 2018 RCC Summer Time Trial series down at Horne saw numbers back up to respectable levels with a total of 13 riders pinning numbers on for the three laps around Horne.  Among them it was great to see one of RCC's favourite 'old boys', Barry Gerhold who has been away for a few years doing ultra distance running.
