Another great ride by Paul Deen last Sunday in the Hampshire Road Club 25 mile event on P881/25 course using the A3 road.
In far from ideal conditions he set a new Club Record of 50:58 which took 3 seconds off the time he did six years ago on a Welsh course with a gift hill.
Paul Haywood also rode but was a little off form, but still did 53:28 another good time.
Paul Deen’s friend Paul Burton who was a member of our Club, won the event with a tremendous course record. See: https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/race-report/22317#anchor
