Plymouth Corinthian CC rider Travis Bramley secured a convincing victory in the City Cycle Couriers 10-mile time trial on the S3/10a course near Ermington in Devon on Sunday.
The 21-year-old from Ivybridge clocked 22-20 to win by exactly a minute and a half from Harrison Hunter (Saint Piran), while the promoting club’s Rob Scott excused himself from organiser’s duties for long enough to finish third with 24-57.
A field of 34 hardy riders had entered, and just 21 took part in the event which takes riders from the start just south of Ermington on the A3121 before heading north east and round Ugborough, before turning back and heading to the finish.
The victory brings Bramley’s 2020 to a strong finish, but it wasn’t his first victory. He also won the Norwich ABC 25 back in October, as well as the Coventry CC 10 in August and the Saint Piran 10 back in March before lockdown.
Fastest veteran was Andrew Parnowski (City Cycle Couriers RT) with 25-19 for fifth overall, 21 seconds quicker than second vet and team-mate Ken Holder, while Peter Norris (CS South Hams) was 53 seconds further back as third fastest of the veterans.
While Bramley was overall winner, Plymouth Corinthian CC also had the fastest junior in the form of Sam Beaton in 27-10, while juvenile Ethan Flack (Optima Racing Team) did well, clocking 30-01.
