Juvenile Isabel Sharp was the fastest female, while Felix Wilkinson was quickest man at the Farnham Road Club 25-mile time trial in Hampshire on Sunday.

Great weather greeted a full field of 130 riders for a collection of disciplines over the distance, with solo, tandem, two-up and four-up events all taking place on the A31 using the H25/8 course near Bentley.

Sharp (Drag2zero) clocked 55-16 to win by 1-44 from Gabriella Homer (Rupelcleaning Champion) while third spot went to Katie Phipkin (Precision Race Team) who was another 1-37 behind.

In the men’s event Wilkinson (Tetbury Velos) covered the distance in 48-04 to win by 28 seconds from Thomas Day (SEG Racing Academy), with veteran Liam Maybank (Twickenham CC) third in 49-20.

The four-up event was won by the Onyx RT quartet of Monte Guerrini, Richard Todd, Ole Henrik Bang-Andersen and Piers Curle in 48-58, which was 1-14 faster than their team-mates Matthas Hieber, Dara Ahern, Andrew Cocker and Scott Leeson.

And Onyx ensured a clean sweep of the top four placings with teams taking third and fourth places.

They were also winners in the women’s four-up category, with Sophie Cuyrle, Clare Todd, Tani Burge and Kathryn Hughes combining for a winning time of 57-11.

Paceline duo Simon Skinner and Paul Burton were the winners in the two-up event, their time of 47-48 being almost a minute quicker than the runners-up Ollie Hucks (Nopinz Motip) and Sam Hucks (High Wycombe CC), with another Paceline RT pairing of Duncan Jensen and Adam Wells taking third.

And Paceline were also celebrating victory with Kate Voller Browning and Helen Ralston’s time of 57-51.

Finally, the tandem award went to veteran pairing of Peter Oliver and Paul Allday of ZeroBC in a time of 53-38.

This course and event proved so popular with a full field that organisers the Farnham Road Club are aiming to stage another event in August.
