Adam Hartley and Henrietta Colborne were the junior winners at the National 10-Mile Championships in Surrey on Saturday.
Racing on the G10/42 south of Dorking, the riders faced strong winds and a rolling course which made for a challenging event for all categories in the Kingston Phoenix RC event.
In the boys’ event, Hartley clocked 20-10 to take victory by more than a minute in the junior men’s event.
He said afterwards: “I’m pleased with my ride, especially winning by over a minute. It was pretty windy, with a head/cross wind going out and 20mph winds gusting to 40mph. It’s quite a rolling course so perhaps a bit of wind would be OK, but not that much.”
Hartley will next ride the Junior Tour of Wales, final round of the British Cycling National Junior Series next weekend.
Second-placed Jake Wright led Identity RT to the team prize alongside Elliott Reed and Sam Iddon, the trio combining to record 1-07-46.
Defending junior girls champion Henrietta Colborne (Team Ford EcoBoost) took the win in the junior girls category by 39 seconds from Footon Velosport rival Hetty Niblett who was national champ in 2014.
“It was quite windy going out, the forecast was for 37mph winds so we knew what to expect,” she said. “I was pleased with my ride, I wanted to win and I knew what I had to do to achieve it.”
