Ely Cyclists Take on Kings Lynn 25

There was a good turn out of Ely riders on Saturday at the Kings Lynn CC time trial held on the B25/33 course near Downham Market, with eight members of the EDCC taking part in the event.

The fastest Ely rider on the day was once again Darran Bennett, the only EDCC member to complete the 25 mile course in less than an hour with a time of 56 minutes 49 seconds. Cliff Loveday put in a strong ride to finish just outside the hour mark, with a time of 1:01:46, follwed closely by Steve Peck on 1:02:00.

Derek Ricketts was the next fastest Ely rider, with a time of 1:02:22, just beating John Manlow who finished on a time of 1:02:31. Will Shepherd finished in a time of 1:05:52, and Alison Holmes completed the 25 miles course in a time of 1:18:53. The event was won by Commonwealth Games silver medallist Harry Tanfield in a time of 50 minutes 15 seconds, the fastest time ever set on the B25/33g course.

Saturday also saw Mathew Eley racing off road in the fifth and final round of the HSBC XC MTB National Championships which was held at the Royal Welsh Showground in Builth Wells. Racing in the Sport category, Eley finished in 10th place, completing five laps of the course in a time of 1:13:24.

This result meant that Eley finished in 9th place overall in the Sports category of the National Championships.
