Joanne Jago was quickest female as Nick Livermore appeared on the podium once more in the Gillingham & District Wheelers 19-mile time trial in Bruton on Saturday.

The win marks the first time Nick Livermore (Bristol South CC) has won this event in the South West of England after two previous attempts on record, he also won the team prize with fellow Bristol South riders David Bolton and Luke Smith.

A time of 32-51 finally allowed the 29-year-old from Bristol to capture the win after finishes of seventh and twelfth in 2018 and 2017 respectively.
