Nurse setting a hot pace at North Norfolk Wheelers

18:30 15 May 2012

Despite challenging conditions, with wet and windy weather continuing well into May, the North Norfolk Wheelers’ time trials continue to attract strong support and several riders have achieved personal bests.

Charlie Nurse continues to perform well but last year’s winner of the 10x10mile trophy, Francis Glazebrook, has yet to enter the competition to secure his trophy. Charlie is also challenging strongly for best all-rounder after achieving another personal best in the 15 mile time trial.
