Club’s teens post new per­sonal bests in 20km time trial

Albany Extra - - Sports -

A wel­come tail­wind on the re­turn leg of Al­bany Cy­cle Club’s 20km time trial helped bring a hand­ful of riders home to per­sonal best times last Satur­day.

In the time tri­als, riders set off at 30-sec­ond in­ter­vals to race the clock along French­man Bay Road and they can choose to ride solo or in a team over 10km or 20km.

The club’s young­sters con­tinue to set new bench­marks with un­der-17s Ri­ley Hes­lop (27min. 25.8sec.), Lach­lan Wal­dron (29:11.4) and Jess Wal­dron (33:17.8), who was first solo fe­male, all post­ing new best times.

Hes­lop was third-fastest of the day be­hind Beau LeFort (26:3.7), who also set a per­sonal best on his way to sec­ond-fastest, while Craig Wig­gins was fastest in 25.53.6.

Emily Wig­gins went out hard and caught the quar­tet of Georgina Cameron, Tammy Stone, Dan­ica Wig­gins and Julie Pass­more within the first 5km, only to be passed by the team in the lat­ter stages as they cut 10 sec­onds off last week’s time to fin­ish in 32:43.6.

Jenny Sam­mons (33:49.5) was fastest se­nior woman ahead of the con­sis­tent El­iz­a­beth Cooper (35:10.3). Duo Blyth An­drews and Stu­art Pass­more lopped al­most 30 sec­onds off last week’s time to fin­ish in 28.03.3, while Luke Coney’s 30:24.0 was more than a minute and a half faster than the pre­vi­ous Satur­day.

In his sec­ond ride with the club, Dan Mi­jat (35:28.1) was happy to get to the fin­ish and post a solid first time af­ter a flat put him out of the run­ning last week.

Al­bany Cy­cle Club’s time tri­als are held most Satur­day morn­ings un­til Christ­mas and new riders are wel­come. Visit al­bany­cy­cle­ for in­for­ma­tion.

On Sun­day, the Amaz­ing Al­bany Bike Ride will take cy­clists along an 85km route from the An­zac Peace Park to French­man Bay and back.
