Amanda Dean and Adam Duggleby topped the timesheets at the City RC Hull-promoted 10-mile open time trial held near Gilberdyke, East Yorkshire, on Wednesday evening.

The Vive Le Velo pairing of Adam Duggleby and Darren Yarwood had worked together in previous weeks to set a new tandem competition record over 100 miles, but Duggleby prevailed by some distance when facing off against one another.

Yarwood had set a time of 20-17 to beat having started third from last but scratch man Duggleby bettered his time by over a minute, clocking the winning mark of 19-16.

The win is now Duggleby’s fourteenth of the season according to his CTT record, while Yarwood finished second but will be looking to add to his three victories so far in the coming weeks.

David Brearly (Squadra RT) ended as the ‘bronze’ medallist on the day and finally broke into the top three on the V714 course after two fourth place finishes in City RC events in June.

Amanda Dean (Hull Thursday RC) had ridden the same two events as Brearly prior to this midweek event, winning both.

Dean matched her previous triumphs once again to make it a hat-trick of consecutive and total wins this season thanks to a time of 26-34, only 29 seconds shy of her ten-mile personal best in open event record.

Jennifer Lynn (Selby CC) was second to Dean as she clocked a time of 28-43.

C4 paracyclist Nicholas Fairfield (City RC) had a good ride for the promoting club and finished 22nd overall in 24-02.

The V714 course is simple in its route. Riders start at just west of Gilberdyke and head along the B1230 to Howden, making a full turn around the roundabout joining the road to the A614. Riders retrace their path heading through Gilberdyke before finishing on the east side of the village.
