Isaac Griffiths was runner up from a small field of members.


Fastest time was done by Matthew Woods Eastbourne Rovers who equalled his best time of six wins when riding as a junior member of Epsom CC in 1989.

Result of the Club 25 mile event, 8th August on H25/8 on the A31 between Farnham & the Alton By-Pass

Thanks to Peter for doing the result and to Tony Rogers for timing, also to Tony Wells for assisting at the event. Thanks to Brandon Stott for putting out all the warning signs again on this course.

With rain forecast, it came on cue, just after the first rider had started, together with a strong south westerly wind it made for a tough event.
It was a fast ride back from the Holybourne turn, with the rain having stopped at the finish before the first rider passed.

Paul Haywood was the winner with Phil Gall the runner up, taking the handicap prize with a good ride, after little racing for a couple of seasons.
On a tough day Ryan Sharp improved his personal best time by nearly three minutes and Cameron Hale and Paul Malloy both did good times for their first events at the distance.

Another great ride by Paul Deen last Sunday in the Hampshire Road Club 25 mile event on P881/25 course using the A3 road.

In far from ideal conditions he set a new Club Record of 50:58 which took 3 seconds off the time he did six years ago on a Welsh course with a gift hill.

Paul Haywood also rode but was a little off form, but still did 53:28 another good time.

Paul Deen’s friend Paul Burton who was a member of our Club, won the event with a tremendous course record. See: https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/race-report/22317#anchor

Result of Club 15 mile event on 20th July on G15/43

A new course used for our first ever 15 mile club event that is almost two laps of the Henfold Circuit

Thanks to Peter for timing and producing the result and to Lionel Barden for helping at the start and finish. Also to Colin Shales for marshalling the left turn near the end of the first lap.

After a very hot day it was a pleasant warm still evening, almost perfect conditions. Paul Haywood was fastest passing Peter for the first time, but Paul Deen did a faster second lap to pull back and take the win.

James Langstraat took his fourth handicap win of the season, a very close one with Paul Malloy only two seconds slower.

Great to see that after many top places in Open Events, finally Paul Haywood had a win in the a3crg 10 mile event last Saturday. Hoping for a personal best of under 20 minutes on the fast A3 course, with 20:02 he was just three seconds from his target. Runner up was Matthew Woods Eastbourne Rovers, making another comeback, who Paul pipped by 5 seconds. Matthew broke many of our Club records when he was a junior member in the late 1980’s, with some still standing.

Also going very well this season is Chris Rosam who did 24:46 in the same event improving his personal best by 12 seconds.

Result of Club 10 mile event 13th July on G10/41 at Kingsfold using a circuit of A24 & A29

Unfortunately road works cropped up again for another event, this time with lights on the A29 just south of Ockley. The finish was just short of the lights, with a distance of approximately 8.8 miles.

Thanks to Peter Cooke for timing and producing the result and to Paul Deen for putting out the warning signs on the course.

It was a nice warm evening, bright and sunny with a slight northerly wind. Paul Deen with the fastest time was almost a minute clear of Isaac Griffiths who surprisingly pipped Paul Haywood by just one second.

After having had trouble with his cleats on his new time trial bike in the event last week, Matt McConnell produced a fast ride to take the handicap award by over two minutes from Ryan Sharp.

Result of Club 10 mile event on 6th July on G10/42 the A24 Holmwood course

Thanks to Peter Cooke for doing the result, and to Lionel Bardon for assisting at the start and finish with Colin Shales and Tony Wells out supporting. Also thanks to Paul Haywood for putting out the warning signs, that are required for this course. 

After some showers until the late afternoon the roads and evening were dry, with a south westerly wind. With the wind in this direction it was a tough event, hard to the turn and fast back. Most riders were around a minute slower than their best time on the course this season.

Paul Deen the winner, was just over a minute slower than when he was third in the Crawley Wheelers event on Saturday. Paul Haywood was the runner up, with Ryan Sharp the closest rider to his best time, taking the handicap award with Paul Malloy the runner up.

Fast times were done by Flora Perkins and Jacob Storey both from Velo Club de Londres.
