David Janes and Joanne Jago were the fastest male and female riders respectively as Gloucester City CC staged a 25-mile time trial near Maisemore on Saturday.
Part of the Western TTA hardriders series, the event used the U72 course which heads north up the A417 through Hartpury and Corse, over the M50 and up to the southern edge of Ledbury, before turning and retracing to a finish point just before the junction for Hartpury College.
Janes (Wheels of Dorset-Aero Testing) clocked 52.40 for the course to take the win by more than three minutes from Paul Atkins (Kenilworth Wheelers), while just 18 seconds further back in third was Bristol South CC’s espoir Josh Griffiths.
And in the women’s category Jago covered the course in 1-06-43 to take victory by almost four minutes from the next best female, Joanna Knight (Bristol South CC).
The victory was the second of the season for Janes, the 36-year-old from Wiltshire, who won the Gillingham and District Wheelers 19-mile time trial on March 10, while he was second in the Bath CC 24-mile event, both of which were also rounds of the Western TTA Hardriders Series.
And for Jago, the 37-year-old Performance Cycles rider from Bristol, the win was also her second of the season. Like Janes, Jago also won the Gillingham and District Wheelers 19 back in March, but she was also second in the Severn Road Club 10 in February and third in the Bath CC 24 in late March.
In other categories, Frome and District Wheelers’ Tony Chapman was the fastest over-40 veteran in sixth spot overall with 58-52, while the fastest over-50 veteran was Carlo Toledo (Gloucester City CC), ninth with 59-49.
And the promoting club also supplied the winner of the over-60 veterans category, with Peter Errington covering the course in 1-00-59 for an impressive 16th overall in a field of 47 finishers.
