Kieron Davies.

A week after being crowned the Welsh 25-mile Champion for the fourth time, Kieron Davies (Drag2zero) claimed victory in the CC Blaenau Gwent time trial over the same distance, staged on the R25/7 course near Usk on Sunday.

The 30-year-old from Carmarthenshire covered the distance in 46.51 to take the win by an impressive 2-51 from Guernsey Velo’s Seb Tremlett, while Ioan Smallwood (Cardiff Ajax) was third, another 42 seconds back.

Davies' time was a new course record for the R25/7.

Meanwhile, fastest of the women was Nadine Cannon (VeloSistas TT Team) who covered the course in 58.14 and was just seven seconds quicker than the next best female, team-mate Andrea Parish.

Starting to the east of Usk, the course takes the riders up the A449 and onto the A40, before turning round south of Monmouth and tracking back.

Kieron Davies is in blistering form at the moment, having clocked a staggering 45.24 on his way to the Welsh 25-mile title last week. And he has also tasted victory in the Ogmore Valley Wheelers 25, Hereford and District Wheelers 25, Bynea CC 30, Merthyr CC 25, Royal Dean Forest CC 25 and Merthyr CC 10 this season.

Nadine Cannon.

Last time out on the R25/7 course used today, Davies clocked 48.24 in the Royal Dean Forest CC event back in March, but was around a minute and a half quicker today.

He is next due to be in action in the VTTA South Wales 10 and Sportzmad 25 next weekend.

Cannon’s win was revenge for finishing second to Parish in the Royal Dean Forest CC 25 on the same course back in March. She was more than four minutes quicker this time than back in March.
