Nick Partridge (VC Baracchi) was fastest overall while Susan Triplow (CC Sudbury) was quickest female rider at the Stowmarket and District CC 10-mile time trial in Suffolk on Bank Holiday Monday.
41-year-old Partridge covered the B10/38 course to the east of Bury St Edmunds in 20-04 to take the win by 34 seconds from Matt O’Brien (Plomesgate CC), while the promoting club’s Adrian Pettit was another 12 seconds back in third.
Triplow, the 52-year-old from Hadleigh, covered the course near Thurston in 23-57 to win the women’s prize by 41 seconds from Kay Burgess (Team Velovelocity), while just one second further back in third was junior Isabella Johnson (Datalynx-Parenesis Cycling).
The course takes riders along the A14, starting at Rookery Crossroads and heading east past Beyton, Tostock and on to Ixworth, where they turn and head back to the finish just before the start point.
The win was Partridge’s second open time trial victory of 2019 according to his record, although he has never finished outside the top ten this season.
He was victorious in the VTTA (East Anglia) 10 on April, fifth in the Great Yarmouth CC 10, and sixth in both the Orwell Velo 20 and the CC Breckland 10 in March.
The Anglia Velo 10 in his next event on Saturday, but he has also entered the East District 10-Mile Championship on June 8 as well as the North Norfolk Wheelers 10 on June 22.
Triplow’s victory was her first solo victory of the 2019 season, but comes after she was one half of the winning all-female pairs at the Great Yarmouth CVC two-up 25 and the Victoria CC two-up 10.2-mile events earlier in May.
