STRATFORD Cycling Club teenager Jess O’Riley continued her impressive season in the name of charity with a promising performance in the Shakespeare 100 event.
Jess is getting better and fitter as the year progresses and this latest display was a fine show of endurance as she completed the 100-mile event.
A club spokesman said: “She spent a lot of the event on her own and it was a tough ride with three major climbs and lots of smaller ones, with more than 2,000 metres of climbing.
“Jess still looked as fresh as a daisy at the finish and proved she is a tough cookie.”
Particularly impressive was the fact Jess completed the longest optional distance for this event.
Younger riders are recommended to complete the shortest 40-mile course but Jess, who is in her first year of racing, declined both this and the 100km option to ride 100 miles instead.
