24th July

Nadine Cannon has certainly found good form recently, following up her Gold Standard ride at 10 miles with another at 25 miles. In the Realteam 25 on the 19th July she recorded a great 1-03-19.  In the same event, Simon Kinsey finished in 1-03-35, Jeff Rees 1-00-59, Ross Morgan 58-06, Dai Long 56-56 and Neale Lewis 55-44.


13th July

Saturday 11th July did not bode well for PB's with wind bending the trees but the Ross-on-Wye 10 mile Time Trial on the Abergavenny/ Raglan course proved otherwise for our riders. Fastest of the Acme riders was Neale Lewis, who usually does very well in events less than 50 miles, passing the timekeeper in 22.34. Veteran Jeff Rees just gets better and better, his 23.00 was his fastest since returning to the sport and not far off his lifetime best. Young Alec Morris, having ridden few open events, took 1.23 off his PB, finishing in 24.54 while Nadine Cannon, also in her first year of open competition and second year of club-level cycling, was hard on his heels with her PB, an impressive 25.17. With this ride Nadine also bettered the Acme Gold Standard for women at the distance. What a day ! The smiling Acme faces at event headquarters must surely have brightened up the place.    Cool
