Neil Palmer’s record-breaking season continues, this time for 10 miles.

He took second overall at the LRRA 10-mile TT at Alford – setting a new personal best and club competition record for the distance of 20:27, an 11-second beating of the previous record set in 2011.

Palmer missed winning the event by just two seconds.

A team of four rode the event – both Chris Ward and Simon Wright turned in PB rides on 21:18 and 23:31 respectively, while Barry Drew returned in 26:58.

Forest Town Track League event one featured fine rides from club second claim member Tilly Gurney, riding for her Squadra Donne Shutt VR team, with third places in the Youth A/B categories 8 Lap Scratch, 5 Mile Scratch and the Prime.
