The Club 25 mile Championship,
incorporated in the Welsh Championship was contested by six members. Simon Kinsey, riding in the overflow event was now getting into the swing of things, improving by a huge 5-31 to finish in 1-07-47. First Acme rider off in the main event was Steve Williams, also setting a new PB and going under the hour for the first time with his 59-15. Kevin Bartlemore was next, improving with each ride and recording 57-46 to update his best in the last three seasons. Dan Taylor, who had been suffering with a sore throat all week was unable to produce his expected performance but still got around in 58-31. Neale Lewis, always a good performer in time trials, improved to 56-45 and then waited to see the time of Steve Bennett who started three minutes behind him. He didn’t have too long to wait as, true to form over these short distances, Steve pulled out all the stops to cross the line in 55-25 and add another Club Championship to his collection.
Meanwhile, Kerry, Chris and Tony have been out in Ireland watching the Giro so we can look forward to seeing some spectacular photos, if the haven’t sampled too much of the Irish brews !
On the subject of photos, Tony Gammon has supplied another six images from the early 60’s including, unusually, one of himself. Tony’s photos are in the Photo Gallery.
