Team Kirkley Cycles cleaned up as Lewis Wake won the men’s event by over a minute in the Vector Racing 25-mile time trial in Northumberland, while Joanne Rea won the women’s event.

25-year-old Wake, of Team Kirkley Cycles, won a 10-mile charity event last weekend and carried that form into this weekend where he claimed another victory for his team and his fourth of the season so far, 52:26 being his winning time.

This time out Wake was followed by two members of his team, Kris Atkin and Julian Macbride, the pair finished in 53:55 and 54 minutes flat respectively.

Vector Racing hosted their first ever open time trial early this morning on the popular out and back M254 course which starts and finishes on the outskirts of Ponteland in Northumberland.

Atkin secured back-to-back 25-mile podium finishes, while Macbride took his first podium finish this year.

In total, 20 riders went sub 60 minutes over the course, one of those was junior rider Daniel Holmes (Derwentside CC) who finished fifth overall with a time of 54:44, which smashed the previous junior course record by almost six minutes.

Daniel said after the event: “This was my first run out on my new TT bike. My aim was to go under the hour for the junior male course record, so I’m delighted with that result. It’s the first 25-mile distance I’ve done for a couple of seasons and I’ve never gone this quick before so all in all, a great morning on the bike.”

Meanwhile, in the women’s event it was Joanne Rea (Team Kirkley Cycles) who was victorious, in a time of 1:00:09 to mark her first win under a new team.

Kate Giddings (Liverpool Century CC) was second, four minutes behind, clocking in at 1:04:26 and trailing her was Vicky Gibbs (Reifen Racing) with a time of 1:05:11.

Rea rode in the North Lancashire TTA 100-mile event last weekend where she finished fourth in the women’s event, and she has obviously recovered well with a comfortable win in the Vector Racing event.

Fastest veteran was Phil Hall of Velo Culture (55:44) with team-mate Nev Martin was fastest vet on standard (59:02) for a plus of 12:09.

Fastest rider on a road bike was Michael Johnson of Muckle CC, the only one to dip under the hour with 58:24 for a credible 16th overall.
