The latest evening “10” at Betteshanger CP was held in much better conditions than the previous week, which was reflected in much improved times for most riders, including some course PB’s.
The field of 40 riders comprised 5 junior and 35 senior riders. As in previous weeks at Betteshanger, the field size has hovered around 40 riders, whereas in previous years, we would have expected to get closer to 60 riders.
Fastest junior this week was Lance Childs with a very good time of 24.09. Also making his first appearance of the year was 10 year old Tom Crow-Brown. Dan Martin was our fastest senior, riding in his University of Bath colours, to record an excellent 21.13. Second place went to Simon Henderson with his first sub 22 minute ride at BCP for a while with 21.58. New member Lynne Fairs made her debut with 31.42, so now has a target time to aim at in the future. Times of all riders are to be found in the attached PDF files.
As usual, thanks go to our helpers who are essential for the running of the event. This week, they were Teresa Childs, Pip McVey, Ollie Robinson, Nick Scott, Mick Bussey, Martin Hendy, Terry Fearn, Andy McCall and Dave Mastin.
