National cycling gold medal for ‘First Lady’ Lyndsay
Fenland Clarion Club’s ‘First Lady’ Lindsay Clarke has a long history of winning events over a range of cycling disciplines from cyclocross, track, road and time trial, but she has always found winning a national CTT medal for winning a national time trial event to be elusive.
However on Sunday in the National 10-mile Championship held on the Hungerford based H10/3R course along the A4 she finally managed to correct this omission with a victory and claim her national medal with a winning time of 24:01.
Clarke was 44th overall, but first in her veterans category.
*Fenland Clarion held their club 10-mile time trial on the Bainton to Bretton circuit and it was Paul Lunn once again victorious in a time of 22:17.
Another strong showing from Jonny Hynes gave him second place in a time of 23:13 with Simon Pitchford in third after clocking 23:21.
It was over a minute back to fourth placed David Thorald who finished in 24.38.
