Good times were achieved all round Alicia Passin who, whilst visiting her parents, dropped in to take part in her first ever time trial and put in an excellent time of 29min 40sec on her mum's bike. Welcomed back was Camille Vala who has just returned from his home in the Czech Republic.

On August 18, 14 riders took part in a 25 mile time trial with again an excellent turn out, especially for one of the longer time trials.

Results were outstanding with Will Dorsett breaking the course record and Paul Bailey and Ian Wright producing course personal bests.

The time trial season is reaching its finale with the contests for probably the most prestigious trophy, the Zac Carr Memorial Trophy for the best handicapped 10 mile time trial, next Tuesday.

This promises to be a very hard fought contest with all the riders training hard and reaching peak performance.
