Stuart Fairweather and Rebecca Johnson took victories in the men and women’s categories in the Stowmarket and District 10-mile time trial on Sunday morning.
Fairweather (Team Velovelocity) won by the narrowest of margins across the 10-mile distance.
The 41-year-old from Woodbridge in Suffolk improved from last week’s outing at the Anglia Velo 10 where he finished second to team-mate Matthew Senter. Fairweather’s time of 20-38 gave him a marginal victory over Lloyd Chapman by a second.
Chapman was one of two Plomesgate CC riders to finish on the podium with Matt O’Brien finishing third respectively. He crossed the line in 20-39 whilst his team-mate trailed by only 13 seconds in 20-52.
Rebecca Johnson (Fusion RT Velo Performance) finished tenth overall as she went on to take victory in the women’s class. Her time of 22-26 helped her beat Denise Hurren (Sole Bay Cycle Sport) by a comfortable 1-15 over the 10 miles.
Fastest veterans in the field were Simon Hance (Ipswich BC) in the V40, Simon Shaw (Velo Schils Interbike RT) in V50, Cliff Voller (Newbury RC) for the V60 category and finally John Swanbury (VC Baracchi) for the 70-79-year olds.
The team prize went to Plomesgate CC as second and third place riders Chapman and O’Brien were joined by Trevor Caley for a combined time of 1-04-31.
