SPEEDY Richard Eason from Solihull CC recorded a personal best on Saturday August 8 at the BDCA Open 50 mile TT and clocking impressive 1-53-02 on the fast A50. Nik Bowdler won the event in 1-40-00 and the women’s event was won by Julia Shaw, who broke the competition record with a superb 1-46-00.
On Sunday a team from the club rode the Stafford Grand Prix - Diamond Jubilee Road Race over 62 miles of the Swynnerton circuit.
Good prize money was available and Andy Peat and Jez Stone were very active and eventually Andy got in a group of 12 who chased down a group of four with over a lap to go.
Unfortunately another group managed to slip off the bunch with only three miles left to contest the win. Andy finished a very good 10th with team-mates Jez Stone, Wayne McKeown and Matt Faulkner coming in with the main group.
