Kirsty Mcseveney

Kirsty McSeveney and Gary Chambers finished top woman and man respectively in the a3crg 10-mile time trial on Saturday.

Chambers (Nopinz) took his first open event victory of the season in rather convincing fashion, a week after placing third in the Velo Club St Raphael sporting.

Facing a third straight race without victory, albeit one of those a third place in October’s National Closed Circuit Championships, 32-year-old Chambers turned on the gas to grab victory in the time trial category by 1-11 after crossing the line in 21-58.

Matthew Buckley (Andover Wheelers) proved himself consistent but couldn’t match the Fareham-based rider’s winning time. A time of 23-09 gave him three consecutive second place finishes, a promising start to build his season on.

Nick Tarmey’s third place secured his best finish since 2017 with a time of 23-12.

Home club rider Kirsty McSeveney dominated the women’s field – her time of 27-08 was over three minutes better than any of her category rivals.

Angela Carpenter

McSeveney made it two consecutive victories after an opening third place this season and will look to make it three wins in next weekend’s CC Weymouth hilly.

Rachel Clay (VC Meudon) took second spot in 30-14 with Victoria Miller (Brighton Mitre CC) in third.

In the road bike classification 27-year-old Ed Slot (Sotonia CC) finished atop the standings with a time of 24-18.

Slot beat Dave Dent (GS Stella) by a marginal nine seconds to better last week’s second place in the Andover Wheelers road bike event.

50-year-old Angela Carpenter returned to her home event after victory in the Farnborough & Camberley CC 10 that morning and made it a double victory weekend.

Carpenter was equally dominant as she had been in her first event of the day, stopping the clock on 27-29 – 1-56 better than Lara Taylor (Velo Club Godalming & Haselmere) who finished second.
