12 May 2018 – Paul Hart breaks the Cycling Time Trials (CTT) 50-mile competition record in a new time of 1 hr 34 mins 37 secs in the ECCA 50 Champs on E2/50c course. Paul recently recalls how his execution in the lead up and during the event was probably perfect. He broke the event in to five-mile sections to achieve his target goal of 1hr 36 mins, only to go some two minutes faster, “Dream Big” is Paul’s moto, you never know, something amazing may happen.
Earlier in our history, in the early period of the Second World War we managed to promote an Open 25-mile TT and post war in 1956 we promoted our second Road Race, The Mid Essex Road Race – 1st place going to the late Roy Godbeer (Spit to those who knew him), then of the Comet CC and later a loved club member.
