Madison Genesis rider Joe Laverick broke the course record on his way to victory in the Alford Wheelers 25-mile time trial in Lincolnshire on Sunday.

The 18-year-old from Grimsby clocked 52-38 for the C25/10 course near Skendleby, giving him victory on the day by 3-32 from veteran Darren Yarwood (Vive le Velo), while Tim Lister (Bourne Wheelers) was another 3-27 behind in third spot.

The rolling course takes riders from the start at the top of Stone Pit Lane along the A1028 to Ulceby Cross and along the A16 to Louth.

This was Laverick’s third open time trial victory of the season so far, coming after wins in the Barton Wheelers 10 in April and the City Road Club Hull 10 on April 19.

He is next due to be in action on June 1 in the Team Swift 10 on the same V714 course as was used for the City RC event, while he is also entered for the Lindsay Roads 10 in Lincolnshire on June 8.

Laverick is perhaps better known for his road racing exploits. So far in 2019 he has placed fourth in the second round of the Oakenclough Road Race Series in Lancashire and was ninth at the elite category Capernwray Road Race, while he rode the Tro-Bro Leon race in April as well as the Volta Limburg Classic – both UCI 1.1 events.

Last season he was eighth in the UCI World Junior Time Trial Championships in Austria.

Further down the Alford Wheelers result, Antony Gough (Velo-One Cycling Team) was fourth in 1-00-08, while his team-mate Matt Elworthy was fifth, 1-03 behind.

The small field did not include any female riders.
