WILLESDEN CC's Jayne Paine missed out in a sprint for the line after leading the field in the women's 25-mile race at Hillingdon.

Paine, who had been in front for one lap, eventually finished 19th out of 50 riders - but there was some consolation as she took second place overall in the track series at Herne Hill.

Willesden's Rich Cooper fell foul of a puncture at Hillingdon, but Kirsten Savage - one of the club's 'family members' - won the under-12 race.

Meurig James claimed top 10 finishes in two races at the weekend, clocking 21 minutes 43 seconds for sixth place in the Hounslow & District Wheelers 10 at Farnham on Saturday, and 55:55 for seventh at the High Wycombe CC 25-mile event the following day.

Lance Woodman also rode in both events, finishing at Farnham in 24:36 and High Wycombe in 1:03:20, while Joseph Foley clocked 26:24 at Farnham and two other Willesden cyclists rode on Sunday - Chris James (1:06:16) and Brian Moon (1:13:47).

Moon also took part in the London Vets 10-mile event at Leighton Buzzard, braving a windy day to record 29:18, while Ron Purdy finished in 31:58.

Conditions were no better later in the week, when Purdy achieved a slight improvement on that time to clock 31:33 in the Lampard RC 10 over the same course.
