Mark Jones (Drag2Zero) and Anna Turvey (Tyneside Vagabonds CC) were fastest male and female riders at the Drighlington BC 10-mile time trial, staged on the renowned V718 course at South Cave in East Yorkshire.
Jones clocked 18.21 to win the event by just one second from Stuart Travis (Team Bottrill), while Mark Nulty (Glossop Kinder Velo) was third, another 21 seconds back.
And in the women’s category, Turvey clocked 19.49 to take the win in that category by 1-18 from Steph Mottram (NCC Group Kuota).
In only his seventh recorded appearance in an open time trial this season so far, Jones looked in great shape ahead of his ride in the National 25-mile Championships next weekend.
This was his third appearance on the V718 this season, having clocked 18.29 in the City RC event back in April and 18.57 in the same club’s TT in June.
Although he didn’t win either of those events, he has tasted victory already this season, having been victorious in the Hertfordshire Wheelers 10 last month.
Meanwhile, the 37-year-old Newcastle-based Turvey, her performance was good enough to place her 14th in the overall field of more than 120 male and female finishers.
The V718 is the same place where Turvey clocked a personal best 19.08 in the Selby CC time trial last season. Like Jones, she is another rider who doesn’t ride many time trials but makes them count when she does.
Earlier this month, she placed third overall and first woman by a country mile in the Darlington CC 25.
She is another rider who is expected to challenge for a medal in the National 25-mile Championships in South Wales this weekend, on the fast R25/3h course.
