Alan Murchison

Alan Murchison (Drag2Zero) and Angela Carpenter (a3crg) took advantage of good conditions to set benchmark times for the season and record victories in the Farnborough & Camberley CC 10.

Murchison, aged 48 and from Winchester, clocked a winning time of 20 minutes and 19 seconds on the out and back H10/8 course to seal victory by 20 seconds.

The H10/8 course sees riders start north of Bentley before traveling along the A31 into a slight headwind and turning for home at the first roundabout near Alton.

Murchison finished second in the same event last season but was the last man out on the course as he looked to take the title. His winning time of 20.19 was 20 seconds faster than the previous year as he clocked an average speed of 29.5 miles per hour.

Coincidentally Eddie Allen (Redmon CC) was exactly 20 seconds slower on this occasion taking second in 20.39 pushing Ronnie Stone (Islington CC) into third with 20.43.

Angela Carpenter

In the women’s category veteran rider Carpenter took her second win in as many weeks following victory in the Dorking CC East Surrey hardriders 29.9 last weekend.

The 51-year-old from Chichester, who won the same event last season, clocked a winning time of 21 minutes and 57 seconds which was almost a minute faster than 12 months earlier and the fastest veteran time on standard.

Carpenter’s a3crg team-mate Kirsty Mcseveney took second in 23.32 while Lenka Vackova (Rapha CC) finished third (25.09).
