After winning his age group in the Welsh 10 Championship the Leisure Lakes rider from Daventry, Vince Jenkins, moved up to a 25-mile event this weekend at Evesham and came away with first on Standard in the VTTA Midlands & echelon cycles time trial.

Riding his first 25-mile race since 2012 the Leisure Lakes man clocked 01: 01: 42 a time that was more than 14 minutes faster than the standard time set for his age.

A delighted Jenkins said: “Considering it was very wet and windy, I was more than pleased with this.

“Especially as I managed to beat all the younger vets on standard as this doesn’t happen very often.”

This event was also part of a season long competition run by the VTTA Midlands Group and this result will hopefully increase the chances of Leisure Lakes getting on the prize list.
