FORMER Birmingham University rider Xavier Disley won New Forest Cycling Club’s Boxing Day 10-mile time trial south of Ringwood for the second time in four years on a chill but sunny Thursday morning.
Disley cracked around the Ringwood to Sopley and back course in a rapid 22min 11sec, beating Hampshire Road Club’s Andrew Langdown by a mere three seconds.
Third went to Poole Wheelers’ Gary Dighton with 22-26 while Greg Parker, riding in CC Weymouth colours before transferring his allegiance to Velo Club St Raphael took fourth in 22-30.
Fifth went to Dighton’s teammate Paul Jones with 22-43 and New Forest CC’s Nick O’Hara signalled his intentions for 2014 by taking sixth with 22-46.
Sam Humpheson and Charlotte Easton, riding in Look Mum, No Hands’ colours, were the fastest of six tandem pairs with 23-53, while Adel Tyson-Bloor was the fastest of eight women solo competitors with 26-23.
New Forest CC’s 15-year-old Tom Reid was quickest juvenile with 26-10.

The event attracted a recent record 73 entries with many riding in fancy dress.

New Forest CC times (all solo machines): Stuart Peckham 24-57, Graham Lenton 26-27, Neil Stevenson 27-57, Phil Underwood 28-01, Barry Wootten 28-27, Mark McHale 28-34, Jonathan Partridge 29-44, Martin Balk 30-01, Clare Gronow 32-23, Helen McHale 32-54, Sean Williams 33-00.
