Sis Valley CC star Salvidge in top twenty at National Championships

Two weeks ago Sid Valleys CC young star Jack Salvidge took on the nations other best youngster at the National Championship on the challenging A10/36 course near Seagrave, Barrow.

From over 130 riders who had qualified and completed the 10-mile course Jack achieved a very credible 15th place with a time of 22:40, just one minute and six seconds of the winning time.

The following week Salvidge was back on more familiar roads at the Yeovil CC 10 on the U30/10 and again showed why the South West’s top dogs are keeping a very close eye on young Jack, for on this Saturday afternoon he set another new PB and club record of 21:31, that’s just under an average speed of 28 mph for the 10 miles.

He was backed up by Doug Parker who cruised round in a time of 22:48, but the following day Parker was racing down in Cornwall where he helped a Devon team beat Cornwall in the West Country Cup over a 25-mile course near Roche and at the same time he set a new PB of 57:57.

With the days counting down until the Peak Hill Challenge a lot of local riders have been seen training on the various hills around here in East Devon and there’s a lot!
