James Copeland continued his fine time trial form with victory in the Bournemouth Arrow Good Friday 10.

The Fareham Wheelers star clocked 21min 10sec to claim victory on the Ringwood-based course – which is not known for fast times.

However, Copeland was left a little underwhelmed but his winning effort.

He said: ‘I’m pleased with the result but a little disappointed with the time.’

Copeland beat Michael Ford, of VC St Raphael, into second spot by just seven seconds.

Third place went to Blazing Saddles’ Andy Langdown (21.29).

Copeland’s latest win comes on the back of a solo success in the Sotonia ‘Chalky White’ 10, team victory with Gary Chambers in the Antelope Two-Up 10 and strong shows in the Portsdown Time Trial League and A3crg Hardriders 10.
