Mark Richards and Denise Hurren were the respective male and female winners as VC Baracchi hosted their 10-mile time trial in Suffolk on Saturday afternoon.

The course ran from Earsham to Redenhall along the A143 and it was last man off, Richards, that topped the 64-strong field.

The DAP Cycling Club rider from Lowestoft clocked 20.47 and was the only competitor on the day to go under 21 minutes for an 18-second winning margin.

The former VC Baracchi man was also victorious in this event last year, but was 10 seconds faster on Saturday than his efforts last October.

Richards has a number of other podiums to his name this season, including second place at the CC Breckland 10 and third at the VC Norwich 25 as well as the Great Yarmouth CC 25.

Team Velovelocity veteran teammates Stuart Fairweather and Paul Jay completed the podium, the former coming out on top by six seconds to finish runner up in 21.05.

In the women’s race, the top two were separated by just five seconds with veteran Denise Hurren coming out on top.

The Sole Bay Cycle Sport rider stopped the clock in a time of 23.42, also good enough for a share of 29th place in the overall standings.

The prolific Hurren was on the podium earlier this month with a third-place finish at the CC Breckland 50, with wins at the Stowmarket & District CC 10 and Kings Lynn 25 amongst her successes in 2017

Twenty-two-year-old Cindy Berry (BowlPhish Racing) finished second in 23.47 with Jenny Anderson a minute and a half further back completing the top three for Great Yarmouth CC.

There was an impressive ride from 17-year-old Lucas He, the Lowestoft junior riding for host club VC Baracchi posted a time of 21.31 for a highly creditable sixth place finish overall.

There were two tandems in action on the B10/44 too, with the Velo Schils-Interbike duo of Gary Pamment and Barry McDonald again taking the honours in 20.39.
