A gutsy performance saw 18 year old West Suffolk Wheeler and Triathlon Club rider Jake Towler in top form at Sunday’s Diss & District CC’s Hopton Road Race.
Held as part of the Eastern Road Racing League, and starting at Hopton, the course took in over 65 miles of rolling north Suffolk roadways. Jake stayed in contact throughout with the lead group and digging deep into reserves held on for a very impressive 33rdspot in a field of very experienced racers.
Meanwhile, 6 Wheelers were at the Victoria CC 10 mile open time trial on Saturday. Held along the B1383 on the E1/10A out and back course between Saffron Walden and Great Chesterford.
A breezy and lumpy course saw tandem riders Mark Eastwood and John Steed ride well in the tandem event, their time of 25:06 good enough for 3rd overall.
Solo riders David Young (50th in 27:12); David Howes (53rd/27:24); Ron Back (62nd /28:35) and Jim Greenwood (64th/28:55) also enjoyed the day.
