An extremely successful week for Cycle Club Ashwell saw new records made and a national series won.
Riding his first ever 50 mile time trial, Will Smith gave a superhuman effort to take the club’s 50 mile record with staggering 1 hour 49 minutes, 59 seconds - beating Justin Layne’s record by 4 seconds.
Jackie Field and James McKenzie took part at the fifth round of the RTTC series in Bucklebury, Berkshire.
Continuing with the top form shown in previous rounds, Field and McKenzie both put in quick times to take 2nd and 3rd in their respective categories. The consistent top performing throughout the series from Jackie has been enough to secure her the national RTTC title in the women’s vet category.
