Jennie Page and Paul Pardoe topped the timesheets on Sunday in the Eastern Counties CA 10-mile open time trial held near Aythorpe Roding, Essex.

Pardoe (Peterborough CC) made it back-to-back open victories with a time of 20-53 on Sunday, two weeks after winning on the very same course, albeit with a faster time.

The 38-year-old Peterborough-based rider has won four times prior to his latest victory as well as finding four further podium finishes.

Pardoe finished ahead of team-mate Matthew Senter and was the only rider on course to clock under 21-minutes.

Senter has two wins of his own this season and unable to seal another, his overall podium tally rises to seven after a comfortable second place in a time of 21-09, nearly a minute ahead of third.

The man in third was Anthony Aken (Cycling Club Hackney) in 22-03.

Jennie Page (Southend Wheelers) has made gradual progress in her four 2019 events on record. The 40-year-old’s winning time of 27-06 means her season record reads 4-3-2-1.

Page’s victory was conclusive over the ten-mile distance with her nearest category rival, Jan Harvey 1-50 behind.

This means Harvey – Page’s team-mate – hasn’t managed to get the upper hand on the eventual winner in her last three outings including a third place in the Southend Wheelers 50 two weeks ago.

In other categories, Kevin Hobbs (Peterborough CC) took the prize for fastest veteran time and assured Peterborough would leave with the team prize after finishing fourth overall.
