Julia Freeman and Rob Young were the winners at the Eastern Counties CA 10-mile time trial in Essex on Sunday.
Freeman, the 54-year-old Easterley Road Club rider from Brentwood, clocked 24-39 for the E91/10 course near Aythorpe Roding, giving her the win in the women’s category by 1-22 from Anna Muir (Chelmer CC), while third was Claire Lee (Momentum Cycles) who was another 40 seconds back.
And in the men’s category Young, 44 and from Shenfield, clocked 21-51 to win by just five seconds from Team Vision Racing-Silverhook team-mate Terry Garlinge, while Chris Smith (Southend Wheelers) was third, just another four seconds back.
The E91/10 course starts just north of Leaden Roding and heads north to Great Dunmow on the B184 before returning back down and finishing just short of the start point.
Young has already recorded some good performances in 2018 prior to this victory.
He was sixth in the competitive Team Cambridge 10 the previous day, while he was second in the Victoria CC 10.2 and third in the two-up team time trial at the same event.
He was third in the Essex Roads CC 10.4, and fourth in the Eastern Counties 25-mile championship as well as the corresponding ECA 10-mile championship event.
Freeman is a prolific time triallist and already has several wins to her name in 2018.
She won the ECCA 10 and the Essex Roads CC 10 last month, while other victories this season have included the ECCA 10 on the same course as this back in May, as well as the ECCA 10 in March.
