New Crowfield 10 mile TT circuit course records set

Round 6 of the Ipswich and District Time Trial series at Crowfield this week saw the male and female course records beaten by Lloyd Chapman and Verity Smith – great results, so pleased for you both. Full results can be found on http://ipswichdistrictcycleassociation.com/results/

My thanks to everyone who came forward and helped marshall for me again, thus enabling the event to go ahead.

We have another two left up at Crowfield, 16th and 23rd May, and I would appreciate if anyone else could come forward to help, on either or both of these dates please – meet 6 pm at Crowfield Village Hall. You do not need any experience, it isn’t a difficult job and, on the plus side, the forecast next week is much warmer so it’ll be a lovely evening to top up those Vitamin D levels! Please let me know below if you can help or PM me.
