Dan Joyce has raced to another win in the Richardsons Cycling Club 10 mile time trial series.

Fifteen riders, including four guests from Scarborough Paragon Cycling Club, took advantage of good racing conditions and recorded increased speed against the watch on a nice sunny evening with a relatively light easterly breeze in the lanes between Snainton and Yedingham.

Paul Cobb sliced another chunk of time off his personal best and picked up maximum points in the handicap competition.

Young Cavan Walker also improved his personal best time by getting well under 30 minutes for the first time, a promising sign of talent for a 14-year-old.

Another junior rider, Callum Norris also did a good ride claiming the scalps of several older riders with a time of 27 minutes 26 seconds.

Pete Roebuck of Richardsons CC, a newcomer to time trials, completed the distance in under 26 minutes, while Simon Walker smashed his personal best time to come home in fourth place on the night.

Full results: Dan Joyce 24:07, Simon Walker 25:20, Rob Powell 25:26, Peter Roebuck 25:51, Callum Norris 27:26, Brian Wallace 27:51, Dave Schubert 28:46, Kevern Stafford 29:22, Cavan Walker 29:24, Dave Myers 31:29 and Paul Cobb 33:39

Guest riders: Brian Stephenson and Barrie Cappleman (Paragon CC) both 24:55, Mike Potter 25:32 and Graham Varley 26:11.

The next time trial in the series will set off from Brompton this evening.

Richardson’s Cycling Club member Frazer Clacherty raced in the national mountain bike cross country series event held at Hopton Castle in Shropshire.

He competed against 44 other male junior riders, he was one of a group of five riders who pulled away from the main field.

Clacherty achieved fourth place, only 40 seconds separated the first four riders at the finish of a very close race.

The course near Shrewsbury is essentially a long climb uphill followed by some technical fast flowing single track back down to the start/finish area.
