James Holloway earned his first open time trial win in almost two years as quickest male rider at the Chorley Cycling Club 10-mile time trial in Lancashire on Saturday, with Deborah Moss the fastest female.

Riding for Ribble Collective, Holloway set 20-38 with Ste Bolton 25 seconds back in second place, the Harry Middleton CC rider finishing in 2103 ahead of Team ASL-Bolton member Mark Parsons who seal the final podium spot in 21-18.

Holloway now has his first victory since his success on a road bike at the Liverpool Century RC 10-mile time trial on September 11 2021, with two wins from 19 open time trial events.

Springfield Financial Racing Team rider Moss produced an impressive performance to finish eighth overall in 22-30, significantly ahead of runner-up Lily Brindle (Brother UK- Team OnForm) who finished in 24-38, while a time of 25-54 ensured that Cara Rawlinson, of Cleveleys Road Club, took third place, narrowly ahead of Caroline Scholes, of the promoting club, who was five seconds back in 25-59.

This continues a dominant season for Moss, having also won the Lancashire Road Club NLTTA Championship 10-mile time trial in her last event in July, as well as the VTTA National 50 Championship (East Midland Group VTTA) on June 10 and the Southport Cycling club 10-mile time trial on June 24.

On her success, Moss said: “I rode this course three weeks ago and equalled my course pb, but it was quite windy, with a strong westerly cross wind. I was hoping to set a new personal best and had been weather watching all week, but with a southerly wind forecast meant a tailwind out and headwind return. The rain forecast was terrible, but it stopped in the morning allowing the race to be run.

“It was raining when I arrived at HQ but I was really happy when I went back outside and it had stopped. It was quite warm despite being really overcast.

“The race went pretty much according to plan, the wind had dropped so managed to maintain my average speed on the return leg and managed to set a new pb by 13 seconds.”

This event, run on the L101 course, is an out-and-back from Garstang along the A6 to Hampson Green, with riders turning and following the route back to finish just south of the start line.
