arthurvenablesraceteamArthur Venables of team a3crg kicked off his 2015 season on Sunday with a 2nd place finish in the two rider team time trial race, which started over in Midhurst on the mainland.

The conditions were less than ideal for the time trial, with there being a mixture of rain and strong winds on the 22.5 mile course.

Venables and his teammate Patrick Brennan worked together to complete the course in a respectable time of 1:03:44, with an average speed of 21.18mph, earning them 2nd place.
