Conrad Moss (Primera Teamjobs) and Catherine Hilton (Sid Valley CC) were fastest male and female riders respectively at the Plymouth Corinthian CC 10-mile time trial on the popular Buckfastleigh course in Devon on Sunday morning.
Sid-Valley CC veteran Hilton, 47 and from Somerset, clocked a personal best time of 22-54 to win the women’s category by 32 seconds from Espoir Natasha Reddy (Bianchi Dama), while third spot went to Martina Geraghty (Penzance Wheelers) with 25-07.
Overall fastest Moss, 45 and from Paignton, clocked 19-21 to win by 24 seconds from Mid-Devon CC rival Andrew Perkins while Tom Scorer (Royal Navy and Royal Marines CA) was third quickest, another six seconds off the pace.
In other categories Jack Dallyn (Exeter Wheelers) was best junior and also best on a road bike with tri bars in a time of 20-04 for sixth overall, well ahead of second junior in Morgan Gibson (Mid-Devon CC) in 21-17, with Harry Jukes (Mid-Devon CC) third in that category.
Fastest on a road bike without tri bars was James Cartlidge (Plymouth Corinthians CC) in 22-18 for 31st overall.
The win is Moss’s second in open time trials this season, having won the Mid-Devon CC 25 on similar roads last month, although he was third in the FTP Racing 10 last weekend.
Meanwhile for Hilton this was the second time this season from just two open events she has been fastest female, having won the City Cycle Couriers 10 on the same course last month.
The event used the S4/10 course which sees riders travel on the A38 Devon Expressway, starting south of Buckfastleigh and heading north to the turn just beyond Ashburton.
Moss is hoping to ride next weekend’s Giant Helston 25, while Hilton is also expected to be in action in that event. She has also entered the Tavistock Wheelers 10 the following weekend.
