Alexander Royle

Alex Royle and Keri Parton topped the men and women’s timesheets in The Racing Chance Foundation 25-mile open event on Saturday afternoon near Goostrey in Cheshire.

Royle (Manchester Bicycle Club) ended a run of second place finishes with a dominant display of one minute and 51 seconds.

The 26-year-old from Derbyshire clocked a winning time of 51-44 to secure his ninth win of the season so far.

He beat veteran Darren Maironis (Transition Race Team) and powered to his best finish since July.

Maironis’ time of 53-35 gave him his 12th podium finish in seventeen events on record in 2019.

Podiums have been harder to come by for Gavin McCloskey-Lambert (Manchester Wheelers) but finishing only 13 seconds behind Maironis in 53-48, McCloskey-Lambert tallied his third of the year, with one of those ending on the top step.

Keri Parton (Pro Vision Cycle Clothing) beat her team-mate Sarah Grant by 19 seconds.

Parton clocked 1-01-54 before Grant crossed the line six minutes later and luckily for Parton it would end in her seventh victory of the year as Grant clocked 1-02-13

Emily Martin (Weaver Valley CC) was just a second shy of removing Grant from second place crossing the line in 1-02-14.
