Monday 21st April - Easter Egg 10, Steeple
A full field of 80 riders was treated to an almost perfect day for time trialling. The north-easterly wind made the outward section a little tougher than usual but helped the return and as such some good times were posted. Leading the way for the Southend Wheelers was youngster James Jenkins, recording a time of 23:36, just 26 seconds slower than the fastest overall time of 23:10 set by Martin Canes of Cycles UK. Jamie Maidment was second Wheelers (25:18) with Steve Shore fastest Vet (25:19), Denise Kemp fastest Lady Vet (27:02) and Hannah Shean fastest Lady Junior (28:52).

Friday 18th April - Easter Friday ECCA 25 Mile TT
Southend Wheelers won the Team prize at the Easter Friday ECCA 25 Time Trial this morning due largely to Paul Hart of SW/EETC who had a terrific ride and was third on scratch. Robin Bevan and Steve Shore were much further down the field but had decent rides on what was a very slow day with only the top three riders going under the hour. This was mainly due to the strong blustery, and bitterly cold North East head wind which plagued the riders all the way up those endless drags to the turn.

Team Standings
1. Southend Wheelers 3:14:15 (Paul Hart, Steve Shore, Robin Bevan)
2. Ford CC 3:14:51 (Andrew Walden, Geoff Bores, Peter Tibbits)
3. Essex Roads 3:23:02 (Mark Robinson, David Warlow, Malcolm Haigh)
