Ross Goes Faster Than Ever

Personal Best  for Recovering Rider

Ross Clarke put his difficulties of 2013 behind him on Saturday when he rode the Shaftesbury Cycling Club's 50 mile Time Trial.

Held on the E2 course which has a reputation for fast times, the event attracted a top quality field.

Ross has been battling back to form since his crash back in May : "It's quite incredible that I didn't break anything," he reflects. "But having experienced what I have, I was determined to get back to form and not waste a day!"

A time of 1:45:39 put him within 5 minutes of the victor in 14th place: "Happy with that," was his characteristically brief conclusion. "It was a very fast field; what's really great is doing my fastest ever 50, simple as that."

Tony May came in with 1:56:06 : "I'm not big on the longer events," he said. "And I was slower than my time in the same event last year. Not a good day for me, but at least I did get under the 2 hour mark."
