Woodhouse holds his nerve and Mayne sets record

Birdwell Wheeler Joe Woodhouse made his mark in the NMRRL (North Midlands Road Race League) event over 6 laps of the 5 mile course at Serlby last Thursday.

Woodhouse attacked and got away in a solo break on the 3rd lap but was brought back by the bunch on the 4th  before crashes made for a nervy last lap. He hung in to finish strongly in the bunch.

On Bank Holiday Monday Trevor Mayne set a new club age record for a 54-year-old when he clocked 4hrs 17mins 22secs in the Anfield BC 100 mile Open Time Trial. On a day when only eight of the eighty-two riders went under 4 hours, Mayne finished 31st overall and 19th on age handicap.

Holiday commitments meant only Chris Jenkins and Phil Adams were out on the short Sunday club run to Langsett.

Tuesday sees the first of the club’s three 15 mile time trials starting at 7pm on Barrowfield Road Thurnscoe. Visitors welcome. Signing on is from 6.30pm.

Sunday’s club run sets off from Brewers Fayre roundabout Wombwell at 9.15am and heads out on an 80 mile loop to Wetherby. Visitors are again welcome.
