TEAN’S competitive young cyclist Will Corden (Lyme Racing Club) has achieved his season’s ambition.

The 23 year old has been working hard to complete a 10 minute trial in under 20 minutes.

His big moment came in an event at Hull where he clocked a time of 19 minutes and 50 seconds.

Corden’s achievement puts him second in his club’s all-time list behind Barry Charlton, who recorded 19:23 in a ‘10’ trial two years ago.

Michael Hutchinson, the 39 year old former Great Britain racer, won the Humberside trial in 18:01. The following day Corden broke his club’s senior record by six seconds in the Cat and Fiddle Climb.

He completed the testing 6.35-mile course in 20:38.

Corden has been enjoying an immensely successful season on the roads in his determination to join the ever-popular sport’s elite ranks.

Back in April, he gained his second category road licence by finishing runner-up in the Loughborough University race, following on his success the Stafford Road Club ‘10’, which he won in 21:33.

It left Corden with a target of 200 points to take the step up into first category, and an additional 100 points to achieve his goal of elite status for next season.
