Great Yarmouth Cycling Club’s Thursday night time trial saw 15 riders compete against the clock.

Although dry, the wind was not on the riders side making it hard going in sections.

Larry Colby took part in his first event of the year, completing the course in a very respectable time of 25:49.

Only two riders recorded course bests, with Jenny Anderson taking 14 seconds of her previous best time, recording 27:15.

Stephen Brown took his time down to 25.51, taking nine seconds off his previous best. The event was won by Harley Matthews in 21.47.

Another week saw another all time personal best for Jan Smith, this time for 50 miles at the VCB 50 district championships on Sunday, August 20.

Conditions were not great with a tough headwind. However she dug deep and knocked an astonishing nine minutes 48 seconds off her previous best, recording a time of 2:25:30, an excellent achievement.
