Harry Tanfield broke the course record for the T252/3 at Crathorne, posting a blistering time in the Stockton Wheelers 25, while Anna Turvey placed in the top ten and was fastest female.
Tanfield (Cleveland Wheelers CC) laid waste to the rest of a very good field and broke the T252/3 course record by around a minute according to organisers with a time of 45-36.
The critically acclaimed 23-year-old has had a great 2018 after taking three medals at the National Track Championships which included a gold in Men’s Individual Pursuit, silver in Men’s Omnium and bronze in the Men’s Team Pursuit.
The rider from Great Ayton also represented his country in the 2018 Commonwealth Games where he rode to a silver medal in the Men’s Road Time Trial.
Tanfield had to beat a strong field which included National 12-hour Championship winner Adam Duggleby (Vive Le Velo) and Tanfield’s 45-36 could be the eighth fastest 25-mile time ever.
Organisers described the conditions as “very good day for it, was warm with a slight breeze,” which would have played a part in such quick times being produced.
12-hour Champion and double Paralympic gold-medal winning pilot Duggleby had to settle for second on the day by a margin of 3-21 to Tanfield.
Despite not the result hoped for, Duggleby maintained an exceptional season which has included six wins and he will look to add another accolade to his collection by taking on the National 50-mile Championship next weekend.
Keith Murray (Drag2Zero) posted a respectable time of 50-21 to finish third. He took his 12th podium of the year which includes four wins and having not finished below fourth in his finished time trials, the 43-year-old sustains a good season.
Former 10-mile competition record holder Anna Turvey (Tyneside Vagabonds CC) powered to victory in the women’s category with a sizeable margin of victory over the 25-mile distance.
Turvey, who finished fifth in last year’s Women’s National 10-mile Championship and third in the National 25-mile Championship led the way by more than seven minutes to her nearest rival.
The 38-year-old had an impressive ride and her time of 52-41 saw her finish in eighth place overall.
