Time Trial Race Team
VC Venta promotes a friendly and active time-trial scene, with riders of all levels taking part over the season. The Club’s summer evening 10 mile TTs are a great introduction to competitive cycling, taking place on local, scenic courses during the summer months.
At the more competitive end of the spectrum, we have riders competing around the country. In 2018, our men’s Team Time Trial squad placed 5th at the National Championships in Newcastle and in 2022 Nick Tarmey won the National 24 hour time trial title clocking up a remarkable 516.56 miles in 24 hours.
Time trialling is the perfect way to get into cycle racing, no matter what level of fitness you have.
Are you keen to give time trialling a go, if so get in touch by emailing [email protected].

Summer 2023 Time Trials
Once again we will be promoting open events in 2023 with a ten mile time trial in April before returning once more to the slopes of Old Winchester Hill for a September hill climb.
Our first open event will be on Sunday 30th April 2023 using the HCC283 Candover course. Entry will be via the CTT website following the link below.
The committee are currently considering the format of a club time trial series for 2023 with a strong emphasis on a series of events based around one course to encourage riders to try and improve on their personal best time throughout the season.
The second open event of the year will be a Hill Climb on Sunday 17th September 2023 returning once again to the P821 HC course on Old Winchester Hill.
