Richard Bideau after setting a new 100-mile time trial record

Racing over the distance for the first time, Richard Bideau (Pendle Forest CC) shattered the 12-year-old competition record for 100 miles on a ‘float’ morning for Stockton Wheelers CC’s time trial on the two-lap Crathorne-Dishforth course which will be used for next year’s national championship.

Going into uncharted territory after reaching 50 miles in 1:39.48, the Burnley 44-year-old was even quicker over the second half to finish in 3:18.54 – taking 3.51 from Kevin Dawson’s 2003 record.
