Club Time trial records smashed!
The club 25 and 100 mile time trial records have both fallen in last few weeks. With competition high across our group of testers it was only a matter of time before new markers were set. Beating Miles Earl’s time of last year, Paul Walshe set a new benchmark for the club 25 record with a 51:26 ride set on the R25/3H course in Wales. Will it fall again this year? quite possibly!
With the new record not set on a ‘float’ day and Walshe going from strength to strength can the record go sub 50?!
The strength in depth of our TT squad was underlined when the old club 100 mile record was bettered twice within minutes on Sunday when Miles Earl and Phil Bray both made the most of their 600 mile round trip to Cambridge. Despite the 5am start both riders smashed Rob Scott’s previous best. With a recent circuit race win under his belt Bray overcame early doubts to finish with a flying 3:48:46 mark. Half an hour passed before Earl would finish, Benefitting from his super aero position he posted a superb 3:48:49 ride. Astonishingly only 3 seconds would separate the two after 100 draining miles.[image1.JPG]
