Conrad Moss (Mid-Devon CC) and Emma Cockcroft (Bianchi Dama UK) were the fastest male and female riders at the St Austell Wheelers 50-mile time trial near Roche in Cornwall on Sunday.

Using the S100/50 course, the riders head from Victoria along the old and new A30 up to Bodmin and back. The event also doubled up as the South West District Championships.

Moss’s time of 1-39-45 gave him the win by more than two minutes from Tim McEvoy (Camel Valley C&TC), while Alex Jones (Team Elite-Paul Bethell Electrical) took third, another 51 seconds back.

In the women’s category, 28-year-old Cockcroft from Exeter covered the distance in 1-58-55, giving her the win by almost four minutes with runner-up Ruth Burrows (Mid-Devon CC) clocking 2-02-48.

Emma Cockcroft.

Moss is a prolific winner, the 42-year-old from Paignton in Devon already having notched up several wins in 2017. He was victorious in the St Austell Wheelers 10 and Mid-Devon CC 25 last month, as well as the Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers 10 in Dorset.

In May he won the Mid-Devon CC 10 and St Austell Wheelers 25, while April saw him victorious in the St Austell Wheelers 25 and he also won the Exeter Wheelers sporting early-season 17-mile time trial in March as well as the CS Dynamo 10.

Cockcroft was last in action in an open time trial back in February, when she was second in the Plymouth Corinthian CC 13-mile TT in Devon, where she was just eight seconds quicker than Burrows.

But she has been in action a lot since then, riding every round of the National Women’s Road Series as well as the National Road Race Championships.
