TIM Burrows and Jenny Wright took the honours at Willesden CC's annual Old Crocks' 10-mile time trial at Amersham Road on Sunday.

Burrows won the men's invitation award on handicap with a time of 26 minutes 30 seconds, while Wright claimed the women's award in 40:07 and clubmates Brian Wright and Ron Purdy clocked 31:29 and 32:11 respectively.

Tom London earned the title of Willesden track champion for 2010 after winning the sprint, points, time trial and scratch races at Welwyn on Saturday.

The women's club championship went to Jayne Paine, with Kirsten Savage taking the Willesden girls' title and Connor Woodford the boys' equivalent.

There were strong performances this week from Willesden stalwarts Peter Dixon, who finished fourth in the Oxonian 50-mile time trial (1:57.58) and Gill Reynolds, who was third fastest woman in the Team San Jan 10-mile event at Cambridge (25:46).

Further afield, Willesden's Martin Lucas finished 15th out of 269 starters at the Mille Miglia event in Italy, covering 1,625km in a time of 89 hours 15 minutes.

Also completing the course were Mel Kirkland (119:44), Peter Turnbull (120:2) and Ian Oliver (123:51), while Julian Holden, Ray Kelly and Akiko Kawachi all set off but pulled out during the event.

Meanwhile, Willesden members raised in excess of £600 by completing 1,875 laps at a charity ride for the Acorn Youth Centre in Eastcote, a club for disabled young adults.
