Course records fell in both the men’s and women’s categories as Chris Fennell and Emma Lewis flew around the 10-mile course at the Medway Velo 10 near Grain in Kent on Saturday morning.
Fennell (The Independent Pedaler) clocked a time of 18-56 to break the course record and top the podium in his first event of the weekend, with the rider due to compete in the De Laune CC 25 on Sunday.
The time trialling ace was last victorious at the Sydenham Wheelers 10 the week before and also topped the podium at the Wigmore CC 10 prior to that.
Emma Lewis (The Independent Pedaler) also broke the course record in the women’s category as she finished her run with a time of 21-19 to claim the top prize.
Lewis is in fine form of late, last being victorious at the Wigmore CC 10 at the start of the month. She will be hoping to continue her good form over the remainder of the weekend as she is also due to ride in the De Laune 25 on Sunday.
The second spot on the podium was clinched by Neil Lauder (Arctic Tacx RT) who finished his run with a time of 19-57.
Lauder was last victorious at the Catford CC 10 in April and has since achieved numerous second placed finishes.
Chris’s brother Nicholas Fennell was the man to finish in third, after he finished his run with a time of 20-36.
The out and back course saw the riders start and finish just outside Grain on the B2001. They then made their way along a narrow and windy route, passing through Middle Stoke before making a turn at Fenn Street roundabout and heading back along the same route to the finish.
