A record-breaking cycle ride from 51-year-old Robby Krygsman clinched a sensational time trial win at Riccall.

On a warm evening, 17 riders set out to complete the 12.5-mile course for Selby Cycling Club’s midweek time trial challenge.

But nobody could halt a powerhouse performance from Krygsman, of Team Swift, who averaged a speed of 27mph and produced a stunning finish time of 27:24.

That performance knocked 1:24 off the existing course record which was set just four weeks ago.

Tom Winn was the first of the chasers, coming second with 30:26 as Zac Smith finished third in 31:24.

Father and son duo Paul and James Harris returned exactly the same time of 31:32 to finish joint fourth.

Next was Andy Collinson with 31:49, followed by Neil Stanford (31:54).

Andy Kearney completed the course just seconds later in 32:15.

Matt Archibald (32:34) broke away from next in line Chris Cunningham, who managed 32:58.

Chris Amor was soon after in a time of 34:23.

A matter of seconds separated Doug Akeroyd, 35:25, and Brad Marsden who clocked 35:32.

Andy Trotter finished in a dead time of 36 minutes.

Andy Bell came in with a time of 36:53, before Anne Harris’ 38:14 and Albert Tether’s 41:20.

The club’s next time trial meeting will be on Thursday, July 18, when the group takes on a 12.5-mile course along Skipwith, Escrick and the A19.
