Matt Harris

ISLAND duo Matt Harris, pictured above, and Arthur Venables dominated a time trial near Petersfield last weekend.

The duo, who ride for mainland team a3crg, took part in the Rake ten-mile time trial, which was previously known as the Hard Riders 10, due to its challenging terrain of rough surfaces, intimidating hills and almost guaranteed strong winds.

Matt broke his course best, taking a whole minute off his previous record, on his way to overall victory.

His time of 24.14, would normally be considered slow for a ten-mile time trial but was fast for this particular course.

Arthur, meanwhile, finished in a time of 27.00, enough to win the fastest junior award. It was only his second mainland ride.

Their next trial is the even more challenging Tour of Lod Valley TT.
