The latest evening 10 mile time trial at Betteshanger CP was held in challenging conditions. It was cool, but the main issue was a very strong headwind facing the riders as they rode down the main straight.
32 riders signed on but we had two non-finishers, giving 10 juniors and 20 seniors who battled round and recorded a time As expected, times were some way off those posted in recent weeks in better conditions.
Alex Dack headed the times of the junior riders with 27.02, while Ferne Peirce was fastest girl in a time of 28.56, which gave her 4th place.
At the top of the times for senior riders was Neil Gerrard of Folkestone VC with 22.27. Sharing second place with a time of 23.46 were the fastest Thanet RC riders, Paul Reid and Simom Henderson. We only had one woman finish this week, which was VC Deal’s Jo Van Velzen who recorded a time of 29.39.
Times of all riders are in the attached PDFs.
Thanks as always to this week’s band of helpers; Jenny & Terry Fearn, Malcolm Adams, Paul Griffiths, Andy McCall and Dave Mastin.
