Christopher Mcnamara earned a fourth win of the season in the open category at the East Sussex Cycling Association 50-mile time trial on Sunday, with victory in the women’s category going to Kerry McGawley.

After racking up wins so far this season at Velo Club St Raphael 16.5-mile time trial on March 24, then at …a3crg 50-mile time trial on June 2 before triumphing at Horsham Cycling 10-mile time trial last time out on June 8, Mcnamara was again top of the pile this weekend.

A time of 1:44-56 helped the Sigma Sports Race Team rider to top spot ahead of trainSharp’s Howard Shaw who clocked 1:50-04, while a time of 1:52045 ensured John Rogers (Southborough and District Wheelers) claimed the third spot on the podium.

“It was very challenging conditions with strong cross winds and everything from driving rain to bright sunshine,” said Mcnamara, whose brother Simon was a non-starter due to a knee injury. “I enjoyed the ride and it was a good testing course and a great promotion from the ESCA team.

“Next Saturday I have the Viking Cambridge 50, and then the National 50 the following week.”

In the women’s event, McGawley set 2:17-44 to clinch first place ahead of Brighton Mitre CC’s Gemma Shadbolt in second and third-placed Domie Pollard (East Grinstead CC) who managed 2:35-15.

Quickest road bike went to Bec CC’s Dominic Hill, who has sixth overall.

This event used the G50/90 course, which begins near East Hoathly and heads along the A22 between Hailsham and Maresfield to the north of Uckfield with riders completing the course twice.
