Philip Jones and Katie Lukas powered to take close victories in the Lancashire Road Club 10-mile time trial, near Catterall on Saturday.

Jones (Transition Race Team) continued an impressive run of form after winning his ninth event of the year and fifth over a 10-mile distance.

The 27-year-old senior conquered the L1022 course in a run that means he has now won five of his last six races, with the anomaly being a second place in last weekend’s VC Cumbria 50.

Richard Bideau (Pendle Forest CC) made another appearance near the paramount of the timesheets, trailing Jones by only 10 seconds to finish seconds in 20-17.

Mark Middleton (Bella in Sella Racing) was the last man on the podium in what seems to be his first CTT recorded event. Middleton halted the timekeepers watches on 21-16.

Fresh off the back of victory in last Saturday’s VC Cumbria 50, Katie Lukas (Beacon Wheelers) was back on the top step of the podium.

Lukas crossed the line in 22-57 to take the win by 42 seconds ahead of second placed Deborah Moss. It was her second victory in quick succession after finishing first last weekend.

Moss (Team Merlin) finished in 23-39 with Charlotte Boothman (ABC Centreville) in third with a 24-09.
