Mid-Devon CC 25 Mile TT

Img 20190908 105808 425

S4/25 is hosted on Devon's A38 dual-carriageway, a typical out-and-back starting in Buckfastleigh  and turning around at the Chudleigh junction. It has a rolling profile with over 300m of climbing

Rider comments

A still morning with just a slight mist burning off as sun rose over the A38 carriageway.

I was a little apprehensive entering an event hosted on what can be a very busy A-road, however over the duration of my 56:06 ride I was pleasantly surprised how safe I felt with the quiet Sunday morning traffic giving you plenty of space; probably due to the long straight route allowing for good visibility up the road.

Although classed as flat, the course includes a couple long-dragging climbs and fast descents. Being less punchy and winding than my only other 25, I was able to set a PB by nearly 4 minutes.

However, known as one of Devon’s faster courses the calibre of competitors was much tougher, resulting in me slipped down to 12th overall. Conrad Moss (NOPINZ) took the overall victory with an impressive time of 48:43, his 4th successive win in recent events. Meanwhile Martina Geraghty (Penzance Wheelers CC) was the first lady with a time of 1:02:53.
