Philip Graves (Nopinz) and Christina Murray (Army CU) were the fastest male and female riders at Stockton Wheelers’ 23-mile time trial, staged on the T235 course near Bishopton in County Durham.
Graves, the 27-year-old from York who is the reigning senior champion in the Knight Composites Classic TT Series, clocked 49.53 to win by more than three minutes with runner-up Michael Smart (TS Racing Team) clocking 53.10.
Fastest and only woman was Christine Murray, the Army CU veteran whose time of 59.55 put her an impressive 16th overall.
Warm and sunny conditions made for a good event and some fast times throughout the categories.

There was also a strong ride in the juvenile category with Thomas Heighton, the Stockton Wheelers youngster who was national champion in last year’s circuit championship in the 12-year-old’s category, covering the course in 1:19.22.
