Clevedon Cycling Club member Chris Mills is in good form, winning the last three events in the Sri Chimnoy sprint series.

There should be no chance of a late delivery if your house is on local postie Chris Mills’ round.

Not only is he quick on two wheels, but he has been proving that he is swift on foot as well, putting these skills to good use in the world of duathlon. The run-bike-run format is obviously one that suits him as he won the last three events in the Sri Chimnoy sprint series.

In the latest round at Tockington, he not only secured another win but also posted a PB time of 38.07 for the one-mile run and 9.8-mile bike leg.

Chris is a self-confessed short distance specialist and top performer in the monthly CDRC Strava challenges, so you may want your house to be at the start of his round rather than the end.

Another local cyclist who has been getting in on the duathlon action is Portishead-based Paul Davies. The Summer Chilly series at the Castle Coombe circuit was the scene of a convincing win for Paul in the over 50 Super Vet category, which was also good enough for 14th overall from a field of 151 athletes. Paul’s time was 48.00 for the two-mile run and 10-mile bike leg.

Duathlon has given Paul a competitive renaissance in recent years. After a long career on the bike, he is clearly enjoying the duathlon format and picking up some great results.

The annual 140-mile, coast-to-coast ride between Clevedon and Seaton takes place this coming weekend with riders able to sign up to a one or two-day format. Portishead headmaster Richard Riordan is not only riding the one-day event, but will also be topping up to make it a 200-mile fundraising ride in support of one of his students.
