The final evening 10 mile time trial of 2021 at Betteshanger CP was held in grey, cool and breezy conditions. Some riders improved on their times from last week, but on the whole, most riders were a bit slower than last week’s times.

We had a field of 34 riders overall, consisting of 11 junior riders and 23 senior riders.

Our fastest junior was second claim member Lance Childs (CC Cartagena) with a great time of 21.17, which also was the best time of the evening overall. Alex Dack came second with 26.27 as fastest Thanet RC boy, just ahead of Ferne Peirce in third. Ferne was fastest Thanet RC girl with 26.37.

Top spot in the senior field went Simon Henderson with 23.14. In second place was new second claim member Lee Buckman in a time of 23.24. Unfortunately, Lee had a nasty tumble just after the finish where he somersaulted over the bars and landed heavily. Hopefully, Lee wasn’t too badly hurt and best wishes from all for a quick recovery. Jenny Benson (VC Deal) came top of the times for the women riders with 26.07, and Faye Faiers was quickest Thanet RC woman with 27.16.

As usual, times for all riders can be found in the PDF files.

A big thanks as always to our helpers; this week they were Teresa Childs, Terry Fearn, Malcolm Adams, Paul Griffiths,
