Lewis Keightley (Team Bottrill-HSS Hire) and Anna Morris (Loughborough Students CC) were fastest man and woman respectively at the Sportzmad 10-mile time trial in South Wales on Saturday.
Bournemouth-based Keightley clocked 19.17 to take the win by more than a minute from his nearest rival, veteran Chris Massey (Team Bottrill), while third spot – and just two seconds behind Massey – was Carwyn Davies (Cwmcarn Paragon RC).
Meanwhile, Morris clocked 21-37 to win the women’s category with ease, more than a minute ahead of runner-up Andrea Parish (VeloSistas TT Team).
For Keightley, it was the latest in a string of good results from the 2017 season.
Other victories have included the Sportzmad 10 on the same course two weeks ago, where he was seven seconds slower, while he also won the Poole Wheelers 25 in July as well as the Selby CC 10 on the V718. And in June he was victorious in Poole Wheelers’ 10 as well as the Hounslow and District Wheelers 25 in May.
And Anna Morris has enjoyed some good form recently too.
She was second woman in the Welsh 10-mile Championships, as well as 12th in the national 25-mile championships the week before.
Her time in today’s Sportzmad 10 was 43 seconds quicker than her winning time in the Ross on Wye and District CC 10 in July.
Looking earlier in the season, Morris was second in the British Students 25-mile Championship in April.
Cheltenham and County CC rider Ross Holland was the fastest espoir in the event, his time of 20-29 giving him fourth place overall.
