Prolific time trial winners Gary Chambers and Pip Jenkins added to their growing lists of victories with wins in the Farnborough and Camberley CC 25-mile time trial near Bentley in Hampshire on Saturday.
Chambers, the 33-year-old NOPINZ rider from Fareham, clocked 49-49 to take a narrow win by just four seconds from Twickenham CC rival Liam Maybank, while Kevin Tye (VeloRefined Aerosmiths) was another 1-03 off the pace in third spot.
Behind them, Matthew Buckley (Andover Wheelers) was around three minutes slower than Chambers in fourth, while Paceline RT rider Pjotrs Suhovs was fifth with 53-10.
Pip Jenkins, the 31-year-old from Tunbridge Wells who rides for the Southborough and District Wheelers, was fastest woman in 58-06, 1-49 ahead of runner-up in that category Faye Faber (NOPINZ), while MJ Cyganowska (Rapha CC) was third, more than five minutes behind Jenkins.
The popular H25/8 course near Bentley takes riders from the start down the A31 Alton Road to the outskirts of Alton, before the turn. They then retrace and head up past the start point and on to near Farnham, before turning again and coming back down to the finish point just before the start.
Chambers has already notched up several strong performances this season, and looks set to continue his winning ways in 2019.
After placing third in the VC St Raphael sporting 16.5 in February, he first tasted victory this season in the a3crg hardriders 10 in March, then went on the win the Fareham Wheelers 10 and Alton CC 24.9-mile event last weekend.
Pip Jenkins is similarly no stranger to winning time trials, although this is her first victory in 2019 on record having taken third spot in the Sothern Counties CU 10 three weeks ago.
And in the tandem category, victory went to Newbury RC’s Rachael Elliott and Ian Greenstreet (AeroCoach) with a time of 51-59.
