Under the hour

CONTINUING his comeback, Leisure Lakes rider Vince Jenkins averaged more than 25 mph in the South Wales VTTA 25-mile Time Trial at Glynneath on Sunday to take second place in his age group.

With a time of 59.37 the Leisure Lakes man was just seven seconds behind the winner of the 70-plus age category and more than pleased to be in the prizes again.

“Having ridden a Sportive the week before to get some endurance in, I was able to put in a strong finish,” said Vince who, with the later starters in the race, had to contend with a headwind all the way to the turn.
