Marcel Schubert (Darlington Cycling Club) saw off stiff competition to claim top spot in the Cleveland Coureurs 10-mile time trial in North Yorkshire, while Emma Matthews (Sowerby Sunday Club) came out on top in the women’s event.
Schubert secured back-to-back victories for the first time this season, clocking in at 19:21 which was just 16 seconds behind his personal best for the distance.
Starting on scratch after a win in the East Bradford CC event the weekend before, the Darlington CC rider justified his position as favourite by finishing a minute ahead of his closest competitor on the day.
That competitor was Rob Carter (Cleveland Wheelers CC) who clocked in at 20:32, making this the fastest time of any veteran riding the event. Following Carter was Jonathan Robinson (Army Cycling) who finished in 21:09 to make it a veteran 2-3.
Carter set a new ten-mile personal best, bettering his previous mark of 22:00 by 32 seconds while competing in his second race over this distance in the past month. Meanwhile Robinson claimed his first podium finish of 2021.
Emma Matthews charged to victory in the women’s event in a time of 24:05, which as her first event ride over this distance, set that as her personal best.
Veteran Sarah Foulds (Sowerby Sunday Club) followed nine seconds behind her team-mate with a time of 24:14 to secure second place, while Louise Hamilton claimed the final spot on the podium, coming through with a time of 25:24.
As well as confirming a podium finish Foulds was also the fastest female veteran on the day.
