ON a balmy summer's evening 22 cyclists competed in the 10-mile time trial from Thursford.

With the excellent weather assisting riders who are reaching peak fitness, some excellent times were recorded with over half the field achieving personal or season best times.

Steve Rush and Barry Wright both achieved personal best times and Barry also lead the field on handicapped time.

Nine riders achieved season personal bests (Will Dorsett, Graham Davison, Brian Platts, Clive Edmonds, Steve Rush, Nick Poulter, John Etheridge, Dave Griffiths, Mark McVeigh and Alisdair McKenzie).

Competition for the best 10x10-mile time trials trophy is fierce, and

although Dave Griffiths is finding his form he will have to dig deep if he is going to beat off some very strong competition to retain his title.

Chris Hunt did not finish, having slipped his chain at the beginning of the time trial.

It was the first race of the season for Clare Jonas, Andrew Knowles and Tom Moody and all performed extremely well. It was good to see Tom Moody back, having first been a member of the club over 20 years ago.

It was also encouraging to have a lady rider and it is hoped this will persuade all those other lady time trialists to join the Wheelers.

Congratulations went to the many North Norfolk Wheelers who completed the Norwich 100 and 50 support of the British Heart Foundation.
