Time Trial Roundup - 15th Aug

Zoila Fernandez ECCA 12hr TT 2016West Suffolk Wheelers & Triathlon Club’s summer time trial season continues towards the conclusion of another successful and enjoyable series, with a full programme of events keeping riders busy over the weekend.

By far the stand out effort of the weekend came from 22-year-old Zoila Gilham-Fernandez. In only her second full season of time trialling with the club and coming very soon after her gruelling shift as part of a 4 strong team which attempted the notorious Race Across America, Zoila took on for the first time the demanding ECCA 12 hour time trial on Sunday 15th Aug.

Road Racing Round-up Aug - 8th Aug

Strada Sport RT Road Race 2016A very warm and decidedly windy day saw West Suffolk Wheeler & Triathlon Club member Jake Towler back in action on Sunday at the Strada Sport RT Road Race. Held over  50 hot, hilly and energy sapping miles  around the race HQ at Saxlingham Nethergate south of Norwich, Jake continues to impress and improve on a weekly basis.

In a very strong field of 3rd and 4th category riders, Jake’s efforts were well rewarded with an impressive 9th spot which shows all the hallmarks of future road racing success.

Two more senior club riders, Richard Carrington (22nd) and Malcolm  Borg (26th) braved the course and will take much from their efforts.

Meanwhile, the club’s successful summer evening time trial series draws to an all too soon close with riders taking on the hilly Higham 10 mile course on Thursday.

Another very breezy and wet evening awaited, although time trial stalwarts Paul Vickers (23:52); Paul Rooke (24:49) and Richard Farrow (24:59) lead the way with sights firmly set on the end of season trophy haul.

Other finishers were Pip Moore (4/26:52); Andy Ward (5/26:57); Viv Smith (6/27:18); Clement Wallace (U18/7/27:35); David Young (8/27:53); Jack Stafford (Cilento Bike/9/28:19); Zoila Gilham-Fernandez (10/28:50); Steve Rue (11/29:04); Steve Newman (12/29:38); Justin Wallace (13/30:53); Robin lines (U18/14/33:28); Dick Lines (15/36:09).
