Corinne Clark

Corinne Clark and Jake Sargent were fastest female and male riders respectively at the Severn Road Club hardriders 25-mile time trial in Gloucestershire on Sunday morning.

Clark (Swindon Wheelers) took the prize for fastest female with a time of 1-03-39, giving her a comfortable win in that category by almost nine minutes from Louise Georgi (Giant CC Halo Films), while Joanna Knight (Bristol South CC) was third.

And of the men Sargent clocked 54-34 to lead a one-two for the new FTP (Fulfil the Potential) Racing team, with his team-mate and previous event winner Felix Wilkinson just ten seconds slower.

Rogue Racing’s Robert Grover clocked 55-23 to secure the final step of the podium.

In other categories the fastest over-50 veteran was David Bolton (Bristol South CC) with 59-29, while Chris Broad-Drake (Swindon Road Club) was top over-60 veteran with 1-05-21.

The event included a two-up category which was won by Ted Cross (University of Bristol CC) and Jamie Atkins (73 Degrees Bicycles) with 58-27, which was 3-17 quicker than the next best pairing of Adam Watkins (Severn Road Club) and Stephen Down (North Bristol Tri Club).

There was also an award to the fastest two-up to include a woman, which went to Amy Pullen (Propello) and Niamh Murphy (Liv CC Halo Cycles) who clocked 1-10-35.

The course starts just south of Stone on the A38 Bristol Road, and heads north before completing two laps of a circuit to the west through Breadstone, Halmore and the outskirts of Berkeley.

Riders then continue north to the Slimbridge junction of the A38 before turning and heading straight back down the A38 to a finish at Woodford, slightly north of Stone.
