Farnham rider Richard Prebble, the former national 25 and 50-mile champion, has won the Bognor Regis CC Goodwood Classic time trial for the second year in succession.

The 28-mile course, based on the circuit used for the 1982 World Road Race Championship, is hilly and Prebble (Team Clean) won in 1hr.9min.6sec, just two seconds slower than the course record he set last year.

Second place went to Gosport star Paul Rogers (St Raphael) who set 1hr.10min.41sec. Rogers, who twice rode in the Milk Race and has been a great competitor in all kinds of racing in the area for 25 years, emigrates to New Zealand next month.

Third place went to Graeme Stirzaker (Anglia Sport) who clocked 1hr.10min.50sec. Dave Shepherd (Rother Valley) was fourth in 1hr.13min.21sec.

Saltdean rider John Limpus (GS Stella) placed fifth in 1hr.14min.15sec and Keymer's rider Richard Sutton (VC Etoile), whose training has been disrupted because his home is flooded, finished ninth in 1hr.16min.16sec.

Rogers said goodbye on a high note by leading St Raphael to the team win. Prebble added to his prize total by winning £200 for the fastest rider over the first seven and a half miles to the top of Goodwood Down. Prebble covered this stretch in 19min.57sec.

Horsham Riders rode well in the Tantric mountain bike races in Hampshire.

Mike Thyer won the Grand Veterans' race, while Stuart Aspinall and Gordon Smith finished third and fifth in the veteran event.

Paul Byford (third) and Paul Carruthers (eighth) rode in the Masters race, and Carl Smith placed seventh in the juvenile race. The novices race saw Jim Barrow and David Bunting finish second and fifth.

Sean Yates, winner for the past four years, has not entered the Brighton Mitre 25-mile time trial at Steyning on Sunday (8.20am). But there are still plenty of top riders among the 100-strong field, including Prebble and Graeme Stirzaker.
