Rachel Baker, Ant Grey, Rob Hoodless & Martin Shoesmith rode the Crawley Wheelers evening 10 last week (11th July).
Rachel set a new club record for a 10 mile time trial. Taking 23.44 to complete the challenging G10/58 course (which runs along the A24 between Rusper and Southwater), she broke through the coveted 25mph barrier for the first time. Her speed was an amazing 25.28mph average over the 10 miles.
Rachel rode over from Haywards Heath with Ant and Martin, an excellent warm up before the main event, then broke the club record and her PB, by over a minute.
Rachel said she had a perfect ride, and was absolutely delighted with her performance. Conditions were ideal, a still and warm evening and with competitors leaving at 30sec intervals, it made for exciting racing.well as exciting as times trials ever get!
If you wish to set your own 10 PB, join the MSTC team, who leave at 6.50pm from the Ship Pub car park, Cuckfield. Race entries are accepted on the night, £4 for non Crawley Wheeler members.
