Eamonn Deane writes … Held this morning on a 34km circuit based from Storrington, the course record of 47mins 16secs was beaten by Doug Dewey of the In-Gear Quickvit Trainsharp RT in a time of 46 mins 29secs.


Second and a welcome return back to health after his horrendous crash in last years Tour of Britain was Wouter Sybrandy of the Team IG- Sigma Sport team followed in third place by Sebastian Ader of the a3crg team.

Fastest team award went to the South Downs Bikes/World of Books team comprising Simon Macnamara, Roger Smith and Gary Brind. For the first time this year there was a fastest Schoolboy category won by James Hansford of the South Downs Bikes/World of Books team.

Winner 23 year old Doug Dewey told Eamonn Deane “The race result is obviously very pleasing, as a win to start off the year is always good for morale. In all honestly, I didn’t feel that comfortable during the ride itself as I only borrowed the TT bike on Friday so other than a spin yesterday I haven’t ridden it for four months!

It always feel a bit odd getting onto a TT bike after a winter on the training hack, but once you get your head around the handling differences it feels really good to go fast again. It was quite windy today so I was struggling to hold it up in the crosswinds sometimes, particularly on the fast descent, and I had a little issue with seeing through my fogged up visor but it’s all character building! I felt very strong at in the last few miles so I’m happy with that.”

Dewey enjoys the road as well as riding against the clock and will be in action again next week at Perfs, What is he hoping for? “The Perf’s is always a bit of a funny race as some people are going well early season and some are trying to smash their legs into shape, so I’m just hoping to get round and test my legs a bit at the end. I’m off to France the next day to race for Hennebont Cyclisme ( so it’s definitely good mentally to get a road race under the belt before I’m off.”
