So good to see that Peter Noble managed a “Sprinters” 22 minute ride last Saturday in the Lee Valley CC event on the E2/10 course near to Cambridge, he improved his 2018 personal best by 25 seconds to 22:59.
Also on Saturday, in the Crawley Wheelers 10 mile event on the Holmwood G10/42, Paul Deen gained his best ever place in an Open Event.
The fast 20:45 was just 5 seconds off his best time for this course.
I had an email from Isaac Griffiths last week to say that his time in the original result of the Sussex CA 50 mile event was not correct.
Even so he had still done a personal best time of 2:02:53 an improvement of over two minutes on his time in last years event. Isaac was heading for a sub two hour ride, but unfortunately went well past the roundabout turn at Henfield before retracing. He pointed out that top riders were around five minutes slower than last year, which suggested a slow day.
