Last weekend saw Buxton CC riders competing in races around the region.

In the Manchester and District Time Trials Association 10-mile time trial, on March 28, Tom Thornely achieved a fast early season time of 23:11 on a very windy and damp afternoon beating fellow club member Mostyn Bullock who recorded 23:17 and Steve I’Anson who did 24:29.

Elsewhere the club was represented at the National Mountain Bike Cross Country Series at Sherwood Pines Forest Park in Nottinghamshire by Rob Cummings, who was fourth in the Men’s Fun Race, missing out on a podium place by only 16 seconds and only 1:56 behind the winner.

Tony Styles also turned out for Buxton CC and he was an impressive 30th out of 68 starters in the Men’s Open Race, just over three minutes down on the winner.
