South West District 10 mile Champions!

South West District 10 mile Champions!

The middle of Devon on a warm and sunny morning was the setting for the South West District 10 mile Time Trial Championships on 14th July, hosted by Taw Velo.

Roadworks on the originally planned S12R/10 course meant that an alternative 10 mile course had to be used for this event, starting at Eggesford Forest with the turn at Morchard Road. A lovely course cutting through the forest and through small villages on the rural A377.

The event was won by Matt Slater (Revo Racing) in a time of 21:03, with teammate Liam Bard just 10 seconds off the pace and […] Read more

Margaret Baker Memorial – Four Firs TT

Margaret Baker Memorial – Four Firs TT

A beautiful, but rather chilly morning in late March saw the running of another Four Firs Time Trial, run by Exeter Wheelers.  The 14 mile sporting loop is a local favourite, starting near Topsham, climbing up through Woodbury to the common, then heading back on a long fast descent past Westpoint to the finish.

This year Revo Racing were well represented with Sue Williams, Reuben Heal, Tim Heal, Matt Slater and Martyn Leach amongst the starting line up.

Earlier forecasts of gusting easterly winds across the common of 25 mph thankfully didn’t quite materialise, so the race proceeded in relatively good conditions.

A cool and blustery Sunday morning in Sourton on the edge of Dartmoor was the setting for another 10 mile Time Trial run by Tavistock Wheelers.  This time however, the stakes were raised as it was also the 10 mile South West District Championships, with riders battling to be crowned the regional champion.

As the results were announced, it was clear that the race was one of the closest of the season, with the top three riders separated by just one second.

Joint first place went to Revo Racing’s Liam Bard and Matt Slater, with an equal time of 20:43.  Third place was taken […] Read more

Revo riders return to Buckfastleigh

A pleasant Sunday morning in late July saw the running of another 25 mile Time Trial at Buckfastleigh, Devon.  The event, run by Mid-Devon Cycling Club, was well attended with 64 competitors lining up to start the out-and-back course on the A38 Dual Carriageway.

The race was won by Mid Devon CC’s Conrad Moss in a time of 49:37, yielding an average speed in excess of 30 mph and just shy of his own course record.  Taking second and third spots were MDCC espoir rider Matt Langworthy (50:15) and Gary Chambers (50:30) from Farewham Wheelers.  Revo Racing were well represented in the top half of the result […] Read more
