Victory in the Brighton Mitre CC 10-mile time trial on Bank Holiday Monday went to Chris McNamara (Nuun-Sigma Sport), while Sally Turner (trainSharp) was quickest woman.
A good morning with early 12 degree temperatures rose to 20 degrees by the time the later hilly 10-mile event was completed.
46-year-old McNamara clocked an event record time of 19-37 to win by36 seconds from trainSharp Development Team rider Harry Ives, with third spot going to Matthew Smith (Team TMC), just three seconds further back.
Smith led Team TMC to the team prize alongside Mark Emsley and Tom Houghton, while in the medium gear event the spoils went to Theo Tadros (trainSharp) in 23-27 which was more than two minutes quicker than runner-up Steven Woodbridge (GS Stella).
The riders used the G10/97 course which uses the A283 from the Steyning bypass towards the outskirts of Shoreham-by-Sea in West Sussex.
Sussex Revolution VC rider Jan Grosicki clocked 22-10 to win the road bike title by 28 seconds from Jack Dunne (Lindfield Coffee Works), while Liz Sim (Medway Tri) was fastest on a road bike without aero spec.
Before this win McNamara had already tasted victory this season, with the Bec CC 10 on Saturday as well as in the Crawley Wheelers sporting 41.6-mile time trial in April.
He is hoping to continue his good form at the East Sussex CA 50 on June 13, as well as the Horsham Cycling 10 the following weekend and the Crawley Wheelers 10 in early July.
