    Press report:
    "Maldon & District Cycling Club’s junior team flew the flag in the National Junior 25 mile Time Trial Championship at Huntingdon on Sunday and did not come away empty handed.  Seventeen year old Keeley Bunton put in a performance which gave her the spoils as fastest junior lady. This was Bunton’s last tilt at junior honours as she will be in the senior ranks next year, but her efforts on the day did not disappoint, with a time of 1h 12m 38s which earnt her the gold medal and the title."

2007:

  • Steve George - Winner, British Penny Farthing 'Ordinary' Bicycle Championships.
    Press report:
    " The profile of the Maldon & District Cycle Club has been kept high by Steve George, the Club’s latest Champion.  He is the new British Penny Farthing ‘Ordinary’ bicycle Champion, having competed at the Herne Hill Velodrome in London , cycling venue for the 1948 London Olympics. This was a massed start race with 6 competitors on Penny Farthings riding the raised bankings of the ¼ mile lap track.  It was a convincing win over Paul Smith, 35, who has won the Championship for the last 14 years consecutively.  He is described by Steve as ‘a ferocious competitor’.  Steve actually was the winner of the race two years ago, but was not allowed to hold the title as he won the race on a replica, rather than an original penny Farthing.  Steve now has an original cycle as well and so was able to become the official champion. It was a double celebration because he was also awarded  the Super Veterans’ Trophy.  Presentations were made by Eileen Sheridan , long distance multi record holder."
