Rachael's record ride

CYCLING: Rachael Elliott broke Newbury Road Club’s 10 mile record in a ride at South Cave near Hull on Saturday.

The Team Swift event was held in far from optimal conditions, but her time of 21 minutes 05 seconds was enough to reduce her previous record by 14 seconds and is the 15th fastest time ever ridden by a woman in this country.

Her time was enough to win the competition by nearly a minute, and is her first major achievement since breaking the national 30 mile record in October last year.
