Matt Tupman (Okehampton CC) took a tight victory by just three seconds in the City Cycle Couriers RT hill climb on Jennycliff, while Elizabeth Sanders (Avid Sport) won the women’s event.

Scratch rider Tupman, aged 34, also won the Mid-Devon CC hill climb on his only other open time trial outing and was again victorious clocking a time of two minutes and 21.6 seconds.

The Jennycliff climb over one kilometre long is a sweeping ascent which climbs out of Plymouth with an average gradient of 7.1% and maximum of 10.3%.

Last year saw National Hill Climb Champion Andrew Feather set a new course record of 2-10 which will stand for another season.

Tupman took victory by three seconds over a tight battle for second which saw quickest junior rider Felix Whetter (St Austell Whs CC) clock 2-24.2 which was only seven hundredths of a second quicker than Alex McCormack (Cleveland Wheelers CC) 2-24.9.

Quickest veteran was Jeff Stevenson (City Cycle Couriers RT) whose time of 2-33.3 was good enough for fourth place overall.

Second junior was Will Piccin-White (Wheal Velocity) in 2-43.4 which was good enough for ninth overall ahead of fellow junior team-mate Jack Wilson (2-46.3).

Meanwhile, quickest juvenile was Oliver Wade (Wheal Velocity) who completed the course in 2-52.0.

In the women’s event Sanders was last rider underway and clocked a winning time of three minutes and 5.5 seconds.

Sanders also won the Exeter Wheelers CC hill climb on Stoke Hill on her last outing in September and clinched her second victory in fine style.

After celebrating her 24th birthday two days earlier Sanders was just 10 seconds slower than Marie Faithfull’s course record of 2-55 posted in 2018.

Quickest veteran woman Angharad Berriman (Penzance Wheelers CC) was second overall in 3-18.3 while Libby Harman (Wadebridge Coasters Cycling Club) finished third (3-27.1).
