Kent CA 25, Sunday 15th April 2009

Eight members from the club entered this event held on the Chilham (Q25/8) course. Dave Wheeler was the fastest member of the day with a time of 56.51 setting a new club record, and bringing it back to a local course. Steve Gooch also beat the hour with a time of 59.07 just 13 seconds of his best ever time.

Trevor Bridge with a time of 1.04.42 equalled his personal best time for the distance. Rod Harrow again delivered the goods with a cracking ride finishing in 1.08.00 taking over a minute and a half off of his personal best time. Ali Steed also set a new personal best with a 1.25.08. Liz King was the fastest Lady from the club with a 1.16.45.
