Veterans Robert Willcocks (Royal Air Force Cycling Association) and Christina Murray (Army Cycling) took comfortable victories in the men’s and women’s events at the St Piran/Northover Vets Team 21 which incorporated the Inter-Services TT Championships.

Willcocks finished second in the same event last season but went one better this year winning the event in a time of 47 minutes and 20 seconds.

The U22A saw riders start outside the Norton Manor Camp near Taunton before completing a loop of 21 miles using A and B road including a few short climbs.

On his last outing Willcocks won the Okehampton CC 10 clocking 19-23 and was again victorious this time out.

The Royal Air Force Cycling Association completed a one-two in the men’s event with Adam Baker finishing runner-up clocking 49-03.

After missing out on the win Royal Navy & Royal Marines CA saw three riders competing for the final podium position.

Veteran Tom Scorer sealed third in a time of 49-27 ahead of team-mate Joshua Clarke (49-44) and Sam Wordley a further three seconds back.

Brendan Reese (Army Cycling) was third veteran on scratch in 49-47.

In the road bike category veteran Rich Hunt (Army Cycling) was quickest with his time of 51-17 good enough for 10th overall.

In the women’s event veteran Murray took a fine victory with her time of 56-25 over two minutes clear of her rivals.

On her last outing Murray won the Fife Century RC 50 last month and she was again victorious over the shorter distance.

Claire Weston (Royal Air Force Cycling Association) led the charge behind taking second in 58-47 while Lauren Parker (Royal Navy & Royal Marines CA) completed the top three in 1-00-07.

Second veteran woman on scratch was Rebecca Comins (Newport Phoenix CC) in 1-02-13 while Sue Chittock (Army Cycling) was third in the age category.

Meanwhile, Caroline Nottage (Army Cycling) was quickest road bike stopping the clock in 1-03-04.
