Platts catches the eye in North Norfolk Wheelers time trial

June's weather continued to challenge the riders with strong, gusting winds, heavy showers and below average temperatures but the time trialers continued to perform well in a packed Club timetable.

The Club's most difficult time trial – the 18 � mile hilly – attracted a strong field and 4 of the 11 riders achieved a personal best. It was particularly pleasing to see Brian Platts, a longstanding Club member, perform so well and post the best handicap time. The eagerly awaited meeting between Nurse and Glazebrook never really took off as Glazebrook is not yet race fit and chose the challenging difficult option of a fixed wheel bike.

One of the most testing distances for the time trialers is the 15 mile time trial but performances, again, were outstanding with 4 personal bests and 2 course personal bests. The next race will be very competitive as both Hayward and would have beaten the field had they qualified for a handicap.
