Two days after riding her trike on windswept, exposed Lincolnshire 25 Time Trial courses, Jane Moore lined up on Monday 1 May as the sole woman in a field of 16 trike riders. The event was on the V718 for the Mike Dixie 10 mile handicap time trial. It was a day awaited with some anticipation as a new arrival on the trike scene had announced he would take comp record. Well, he – Adam Duggleby- obliterated it by 1m 21sec it posting 19:30.
Meanwhile, after worrying about wind, wheels, a reluctant computer and, as usual, pretty much everything, Jane pulled herself together and just rode arriving at the finish HQ rather surprised to find she’d done a PB (28:25), broken her own club record and beaten Christine Minto’s 15 year-old course record for women’s solo trike.
More surprise followed when she was led, disbelieving, to the results board and shown she’d also won the event which is won on handicap time – by 5 seconds. Apparently it’s a very nice trophy, made all the more special as the last woman to win it was Christine Minto (in 1999) who timed Jane into John o Groats on her End to End record.
