Corbett beats 20 year old cycling record

Worcester St Johns rider Mark Corbett recently competed in the Welsh 12 hour cycling time trial championship reaching an impressive distance of 262 miles. He becomes the second member of Worcester St Johns cycling club to tackle the 12 hour challenge this year and set a new club record, this time beating the previous men’s standard from 1996 by 16 miles. In hot conditions on roads around Abergavenny and Hereford, Corbett had a tough but incident-free ride to finish 6th overall, taking the novice prize having never completed the full duration before. He now holds a clean-sweep of senior men’s club time trial records from 10 miles all the way up to 12 hours.
