A full week of racing saw records tumbling for the Lewes Wanderers Cycling Club.

The action began on Monday night when three Lewes riders headed over to Hampshire to compete in the a3crg 25 mile race.

The fast course coupled with near perfect conditions ensured that some cracking times were set in the quality field.

Tamar Vanderhaas broke the hour barrier in spectacular fashion with a time of 58:51 placing her in third place in the Ladies competition.

Phil Allen was an agonising eleven seconds off the club 25 record with a time of 51:17, with Tom Glandfield slicing three minutes off his PB crossing the line in 51:43. These three storming performances ensured that the club team record went their way, and it is thought that this is the first time in the Wanderers history that a female rider has been part of a record breaking team.
