Adalta CC star Emma Lewis con­tin­ued her fine form by smash­ing her per­sonal best with a time of 22min 10sec at Ash­ford Wheel­ers’ 10-mile time-trial. Ever-im­prov­ing Lewis fol­lowed this up by tak­ing a solo vic­tory at Red­bridge on Satur­day. Break­ing away from the group with an­other rider, Lewis put the power down in the clos­ing laps to cross the line with a good gap back to her ri­val. Freya Rawl­ins rode well on the front of the bunch to keep any at­tacks at bay and took 4th in the sprint fin­ish. Rawl­ins was back at Red­bridge the fol­low­ing day for the Es­sex Giro Sup­port Race and mir­rored her team­mates per­for­mance from the pre­vi­ous day. Rawl­ins found her­self chas­ing the lead rider then had a slip on one of the bends in the wet con­di­tions. Re­cov­er­ing quickly, she pushed on and held her po­si­tion to take sec­ond place. Jo Smith trav­elled to Ip­swich for a grass track event on Sun­day.She com­peted in both the men’s and women’s events, tak­ing wins across the board in the women’s races. In the men’s event, Smith won her repechage to qual­ify for the 800m semis then fin­ished sec­ond in the un­known dis­tance race and eighth in the devil. Thanet RC hosted their first mid­week crit race, al­ter­ing the sim­ple cir­cuit to make for a tech­ni­cal and fast race. Jason Oram was fifth, fol­lowed by Ross Bryan in sixth and Stu­art Baldwin ninth. Lewis and Smith filled the top two places in the women’s race. Yian­nis Christodoulou won the Ocean Tri Aquathon in 31.36, while Mark Stock­ley was 13th in 39.14 and Justine Beba was third lady home in 41.28. Christodoulou then went on to fin­ish 23rd over­all and third in his age group in the Na­tional Aquathon Cham­pi­onships at Leeds in a time of 35.11. Tak­ing the bronze medal, Christodoulou se­cured a place at the world Cham­pi­onships in Mex­ico this year.
