Cleminshaw improves own Vets’ 10 record

On Saturday 30 September, 2017 lifelong Hull Thursday RC member Neil Cleminshaw improved his lifetime Personal Best of 19:59 by 9 seconds to also set a new Veterans’ 10 Record.


Neil’s steed for the 2017 season has been a stealthy looking Giant Trinity Advanced Pro frameset, completed with Sram Red 10 speed groupset, Rotor Flow power meter, Zipp wheels and Fizik saddle. His aero positioning has been refined and improved upon over the years with a new Giro Aerohead helmet definitely helping too!


The City Road Club Open 10 was run on the super fast, but busy V718 from South Cave to Melton and back.

The event was won by J Laverick from Catford CC in a time of 18:50, followed in second place by local rider D Yarwood from VC Beverley in 19:39. M Cross from the Yorkshire Road Club clocked 19:43 for third spot on the podium which left Neil in a superb fifth place, bagging him a £25 prize, which will no doubt go towards paying for that slippery rig!

Well done Neil from the Committee, club members and anyone who can recognise a top ride when they see one.
