Hannah Bayes.

The promoting club’s Richard Peel and Hannah Bayes (LIV AWOL) were fastest male and female at the Malton Wheelers 10.5-mile time trial in East Yorkshire on Saturday.

Peel clocked 22.40 for the V411/1 course near Sledmere, taking victory by the narrowest of margins from former National Time Trial Series winner Philip Graves (NOPINZ) who was second in 22.41.

Third spot went to veteran Ian Mitchelson (Albarosa CC) with 23-23, again just one second fastest than fourth-placed Blair Buss (Halifax Imperial Wheelers).

Of the women, Hannah Bayes was fastest in 27-02, the Scarborough-based 18-year-old being 21 seconds quicker than Jessica Kaye (Harrogate Nova CC).

The event is known as the Sledmere Monuments Time Trial, and is known as a good early season test for the legs.

Starting from Tatton Sykes monument to the south of the village, the course takes riders down to Fimber roundabout for the turn before climbing back to the finish.

It is part of the Yorkshire SpoCo (Sporting Courses) Series, with results counting towards the overall placings.

Despite covering the course around a minute quicker than his 2017 time when Graves was second, he was pipped to the top of the podium once again. Bayes was fastest female 12 months ago too, and has improved markedly over the last year by around two and a half minutes.
