Katerina Avramides and Pete Tadros were the fastest female and male rider as Brighton Mitre CC staged a tough 25-mile hilly time trial on the GS999 Devil’s Dyke course in West Sussex on Easter Monday.
Avramides, the 36-year-old Brighton Mitre CC rider from Lewes, clocked 1:14.57 to take the win, while 46-year-old Tadros clocked 59.35 to win by 24 seconds and make it 12 wins in 14 years of riding the event.
Avramides had to settle for second in the club’s hilly 10-mile event on Easter Saturday, but was also part of the winning Brighton Mitre team on that day.
She is no stranger to the top of the podium, having been part of the fastest female pairing at the Sussex CA two-up 25 the weekend before alongside Sarah Phelps (Crawley Wheelers).
Avramides was again part of the winning Brighton Mitre CC team alongside Jack Smith and Don Parker, while the fastest juvenile rider was Pete Tadros’s son Theo Tadros, who covered the course in an impressive 1:11.15.
There was also a road bike category, which was won by Brighton Mitre’s Jamie Smith in 1-15-57, winning by more than three minutes from club-mate Peter Davies.
