His first season in Acme colours has been very successful for Dave Singleton, gaining valuable experience and achieving P.B. on the way. His final two races before the WCA 50 were the Sportzmad 10 on the R10/17 course on the A40 between Abergavenny and Raglan followed by the PTW 25 on the R25/3H course in the Neath Valley. Two quite different events in very different conditions, the good weather for the 10 event encouraged Dave to go for a PB for the distance. He finished very pleased with himself, posting a PB of 23m04s, a Silver Standard achievement for this distance.
The 25 mile event the following week took place under quite different conditions with the weather being wet and windy. Dave’s advice to other members is to make sure you wear weather appropriate clothing for events. Dave suggests that he was not properly kitted out and was just happy to get around the course. His time of 58m34s indicates what he is capable of achieving when he gets everything right. This Silver Standard time is only a few minutes short of Gold Standard and surely Dave will set his sights in this goal next season
