Martina Geraghty and Steve Lampier continued winning starts to the 2021 season with victories in the Giant Helston 10-mile time trial near Truro on Sunday morning.

Lampier’s win was a third in three events so far this season for the 37-year-old, while 51-year-old Geraghty added to her victory in the Plymouth Corinthian CC 10 on Easter Sunday.

Riding for Saint Piran, Lampier clocked 20-18 to take the win on the day by almost a minute from FTP Fulfil the Potential rider Tim McEvoy in 21-15, while Lampier’s team-mate at Saint Piran Harrison Hunter completed the virtual podium in third with 21-53.

“It’s always good to get a win,” said Lampier, 37 and from Falmouth. “It confirms the hard work over the winter months is paying off. It’s good to see that the uncertainty of not knowing when the season will start hasn’t affected my training.

“I’ve always ridden time trials but have been successful because of my strength. But lockdown has given me chance to focus on being aero and strong too, and it’s great to refine things there.”

Further down the result the promoting club’s Jason McGowan was fourth in 22-27, and just one second further back in fifth was Harry Jukes.

Geraghty led a one-two for Penzance Wheelers in the women’s category. Her time of 26-24 was 57 seconds better than team-mate Angharad Berriman, while Giant Helston rider Kate Doran took third, another 21 seconds back.

And special mention goes to 12-year-old Eva Fox (Mid-Devon CC) who clocked an impressive 29-40.

The popular S6/10 course uses the B3275 north of Tresillian near Truro in Cornwall, and takes riders up to the junction with the B3058, where they turn and head back south through Lacock to a finish point just before the start line.

Lampier will be aiming for a fourth consecutive open time trial win when he rides the Penzance Wheelers 10 next Sunday. Last weekend he won the Mid-Devon CC 23 as well as the Easter Monday Northover VT 10.
