Rolling back the years

Ystwyth CC report – round 19 – Wednesday 8th August 2018

With the sun setting majestically over the Rheidol valley,  round 19 saw 11 riders register for the Cwm Rheidol 10 mile time trial. This is regarded as a challenging 10  mile course used by the club and with this being the last outing on the course for 2018, riders would be pushing hard to get that elusive PB or course win or record followed cake and coffee.

Rolling back the years and knocking out a performance often seen a decade ago, In the men’s event, Shelley Childs took the win in a  time of 24min 19sec.  Second place went to rider Richard Eakins on a road bike in a time of 24min 35 sec, and third place to Glyn ‘GT’ Williams in a time of 24min 44sec.

In the women’s event, an impressive ride from Helen Marshall took the win in a time of 26min 50sec. Second place went to Lowri Richards in a time of 28min and 30sec, and third place to Nia Richards in a time of 33min 22sec.

Next week the event returns to the Llety Gwyn course for 2 consecutive weeks. The need for speed continues…….
