On Saturday afternoon in the Dukinfield C.C. 50 mile time trial Ben Norbury had another second place (also second last week in a 25). His time of 1:49:32 was just over a minute behind the winner and only 1 second off his personal best. Philip Gleave did do a PB. His 1:56:17 beat his previous best by over 4 minutes. Stephen Sladin recorded 2:08:11, Ed Wright 2:28:22 (first ever 50) and Lesley Norbury 2:45:16
The club was out in force on Sunday morning the National Team Time Trial Championships at Cranage. We had two teams of three riding and another large group in the “Congleton CC Fanzone” at Allostock. The team of Ben Norbury, Phil Gleave and Jake Dooley rode the 31 mile course in 1:07:06 to finish 16th of 43 of the best teams in the country. Our veterans team of Stephen Sladin, Mat Stephenson and Dave Farrington finishes in 1:13:59 for 29th place. Some team members still sore legs from yesterday’s Dukinfield 50. Who knows what they might have done if they were rested like most other teams! TTT photos from Adrian Pennington.
