CAESAREAN Cycling Club’s Robin Ovenden was a clear winner of the Jersey Cycling Association’s ten-mile time trial championship race from La Mare in St Clement to Gorey and back on Sunday morning.
Ovenden, who is focused on gaining a place in Jersey’s team for the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, completed the course in 22 minutes and 38 seconds, a fine performance in difficult and windy conditions.
Ovenden, the overall winner of the Easter Festival, said: ‘Training is going well and I was delighted with the time trial result; Mike Harris had a very good ride too to take second place and he also won gold as first veteran.
‘Wind conditions were not favourable for a good time but it was strange because there was a head wind all the way out but it was not behind us coming back.’
Four Jersey riders have India in their sights, Ovenden along with Chris Spence, Chris Seviour and Adam Wojtkiewicz.
