Tim McEvoy won the 25-mile St Austell Wheelers event on Easter Sunday and recorded a very competitive time despite the cold conditions.
The Camel Valley rider won by 39 seconds, completing the course in a time of 52.04. The next best time was that of veteran Mid Devon CC man Conrad Moss with 52.47.
University of Oxford CC member Oliver Bent completed the top three, 49 seconds down on Moss’ time in 53.36.
The dual carriageway course can be a rather quick course but with far from ideal conditions, the 53 riders made the best of the event.
There was a Penzance Wheelers one-two in the women’s category with Stacey Ginieres taking a narrow victory over team mate Rebecca Campbell. Ginieres stopped the clock at 1:03.57 and Campbell was just over a minute slower in 1:04.52.
Moss’ great ride saw him claim the veteran prize for the age range of 40 to 49 with Steve Hocking-Thompson of Revo Racing taking the prize for 50 to 59-year-olds in 56.51. The fastest over 60 rider was Penzance Wheeler Peter Blackshaw in 1:04.15.
