Venda Pollock and Liam Beaty powered to victories, clocking super quick times in the South Shields Velo 10-mile event on Saturday.

Liam Beaty (Hawick CC) took full advantage of the glorious conditions to capture victory but admitted the heat was also a hindrance.

“The warmth today made it a bit harder than planned!” he said. “I wasn’t aware at all of the course record; I was just aiming for a sub-19 ride. Afterwards, I soon realised that it may actually have been possible!”

Beaty crossed the line on 19-00, his best in open time trialling but fell agonisingly short of the 18-59 course record set by Adam Wild only last season.

The win makes it two in a row for 33-year-old Beaty.

Venda Pollock (Blaydon CC) clocked an impressive time of 22-01 to give her a commanding victory. The 41-year-old finished 24 seconds ahead of Blaydon CC compatriots Carrie Brooks and Joanne Rea who locked out the podium.

“I was hoping for a PB today and that was the goal as I’d been racing last week and I wasn’t sure how much my legs had recovered,” said Pollock.

“Inevitably, I had to slow a bit at the roundabout and again on the return leg as a car came onto the slip-road, but otherwise it was a solid race.”

Back in the men’s category, Kris Atkin (Team Bottrill) finished second, 38 seconds behind winner Beaty in 19-38 with Ribble Pro Cycling’s Shaun Tyson in third with 19-49.

The fastest road bike prize went to Jon Bayley (Reifan Racing) with Jane Aston (Blaydon CC) the fastest woman in that category.

In the veterans categories Phil Hall (Breeze Bikes) was top over-40, while the over-50 prize went to Harry Walker (Revolver) and Derwentside CC’s Wayne Coates was best over-60.

In the women’s veteran categories Gemma Hutchins was top over-40, while Nicola McCoy (Muckle CC) was best over-50.

Fastest junior/juvenile was Joe Dixon (Gosforth RC), while Maddy Hall (Breeze) was best junior girl.

And of the South Shields Velo riders, Dave Nearney was fastest while Claire Cook won the prize for a woman from the promoting club.
