Sam smashes his lifetime PB on the E2

After going close to a lifetime best and a sub 21 minute ride several times Sam Hayes was beginning to wonder whether that 20 minute ride was ever going to happen, despite assurances from many in the team that he had the form and simply needed the day.

On Saturday as Sam lined up for the start of the ECCA 10 it has to be said that it didn't look like the perfect day for a PB, but a superb ride saw him take 26 seconds from his previous best time to clock 20:41 and take 7th place overall. We're not sure if even 4 days later he has stopped grinning !

Usually Hugo Hocknell would be battling with Sam for the hour of fastest from the team, but a midweek illness took its toll and he was a bit short of that final top end speed on the day. That said, a 21:23 and 21st place was still an excellent result.

Chris Hartley was the third counter for the team, with a sub 24 minute ride (23:58) and Stuart Hocknell went agonisingly close to breaking the 20 mph barrier with his 30:03, whjch ranks as his 3rd quickest time at the distance this year.
