Joe Parker

Junior rider Freya Richardson produced a great performance to finish as top female while Joe Parker was fastest male in Blazing Saddles hill-climb on Knight’s Hill in Goodwood on Sunday.

Joe Parker (Blazing Saddles) made it back-to-back wins in the event hosted by his team.

Last time out Parker took the contest by five seconds but was stretched his advantage this time around to eight – beating John Hunt in second.

Parker crossed the line in 3-44 while Hunt (Beacon Roads CC) had his best finish of the season so far in 3-52.2.

Richard Cartland (South Downs Bikes) who had a win of his own on Saturday – and finished second to Parker here last season – finished in third. Cartland was only four seconds adrift of Hunt after clocking 3-56.7.

Only four riders made it under the 4-minute mark with last being Sam Murphy (DH Cyclesport) in 3-58.9 when finishing in fourth overall.

Freay Richardson

Freya Richardson (Hargroves Montezuma’s RT) was fastest female by some distance, crossing the line in 4-05.6 as she finished seventh in the overall standings.

The win would be the 17-year-old’s first of the season, beating experienced rider Kirsty McSeveney (a3crg) to the prize.

McSeveney won in her last open event over 10 miles but had to settle for second when riding her first hill-climbing event of the season.

She clocked a time of 4-36.1 while Olivia Webb (Eastbourne Rovers CC) finished third in 4-45.5.

Women’s winner Richardson was fastest junior while quickest juvenile prize went to Jonathan Vickers (i-Team Cyclists Club) finishing only one place behind Freya overall in a time of 4-12.4.
