JANE Kew is a national champion only five years after taking up her sport.
Jane, 49, rides for Weaver Valley CC and won the British 100-mile time trial women veterans championship at Manchester.
“I am very pleased. It is probably my best event and certainly the best win I’ve ever had.
“I thought I‘d do well, but not win. I have ridden faster, but it was in rain and wind and it still felt great, ” she said.
Jane clocked 5hrs 3mins, a little off her personal best.
She only took up competitive cycing in 2003, but after years of riding long distances for pleasure. “I got the bug,” she said.
