The new 2019 national champions at 25 miles are Kevin Tye and Angela Carpenter. Kevin took the men's title by 17 seconds on standard plus time from Keith Ainsworth with the evergreen Peter Horsnell in bronze medal position. For the women, Angela followed up on her 10 mile championship win with another gold medal. Jackie Field took silver and Deb Hutson-Lumb bronze.
In the tandem event the formidable new pairing of Ian Greenstreet and Rachael Elliott not only took the gold medal but also set a new national competition record for a mixed tandem at 25 miles in 47.09. They are shown above with John Golder the event organiser.
The local contingent did well with East Anglian taking the Group championship and Cambridge CC the club championship
Held on a breezy if bright and sunny Sunday morning, times were not the fastest but there were still a number of sub 50 minute rides with the fastest being James Rix in 48.07.
Thanks to John Golder and his team for excellent organisation of the championship.
