Results are still to be announced, but the pair were both well ahead of their rivals as they ploughed round the course near Alton on Sunday – and initial readings suggest they both set new competition records en route.

Elsewhere, there were some impressive times clocked in the Hemel Hempstead CC 10 in Hertfordshire on Saturday, where Commonwealth Games time trial silver medallist Harry Tanfield (Cleveland Wheelers) broke the course record with a time of 17-11, leaving Dan Bigham (Ribble Pro Cycling) to take second with 17-38.

The course record also fell in Northumberland, where Adam Wild (GS Metro) won the Sunderland Clarion 25, which doubled up as the NDCA Championships.

He clocked 52-07 to take 34 seconds from the old mark and leave team-mate Danny Grieves to settle for second by 59 seconds.

Gemma Frost (Team Swift) was the best of the women, clocking 1-00-46 to win by 3-40 from Joanne Rea (Blaydon CC).

In Cheshire, Mat Ivings (Buxton CC) and Claire Harrison (Vision Racing) were the fastest male and female riders respectively at the Manchester and District TTA 50 on Sunday.
