Riding in his new SwiftCarbon Pro Cycling colours, Oliver Peckover smashed the course record on his way to winning the Matlock CC 25, while host club rider Amelie Wayte won the women’s event.
Peckover, aged 23, knocked over a minute-and-a-half off the previous course record on his way to an eighth victory of the season in a time of 49 minutes and 27 seconds.
The A25/12 saw riders start near Darley Hillside before heading out north-westerly on the A6 to Bakewell and then turning to make the return journey.
After passing back through the start at around 10 miles competitors then continue along the A6 to Matlock before returning again to the start/finish.
The final leg sees riders complete the first out and back leg to Bakewell to complete the 25 miles.
