Dan Bigham

Dan Bigham (Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling) took over a minute off the course record in the Nova Raiders CC 10 to get his British season off to a flying start, while Jessica Rhodes-Jones (AeroCoach) won the women’s event.

Bigham, who had just returned from a period of working and racing time trials in Denmark, clocked a winning time of 18 minutes and 27 seconds in Shropshire.

The previous course record was 19.38 set by Arthur Franklin (Portishead CC) last September, but Bigham knocked a minute and 11 seconds off that time and was only the third rider to record a sub-20 minutes time on the course.

The D10/23R course saw riders head north into a headwind on the out and back course from Waters Upton before turning for home at Hodnet.

Bigham, aged 29, from Stone, had time to recon the local course the day prior to the event and the member of the winning National Team Time Trial squad clocked a blistering time almost two minutes clear of his nearest rival.

Under-23 rider George Mills-Keeling led the rest of the field home to give Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling a one-two with his time of 20-16 just two seconds quicker than Kieran Morris (Team Bottrill).

Jessica Rhodes-Jones

In the women’s event Rhodes-Jones took her first open victory of the season clocking a time of 22-26, beating Anna Docherty (Team Breeze) by nearly a minute (23:25).

Rhodes-Jones was pushed into second in the Coventry 10 towards the end of last season but showed improvement in her time by 24 seconds over the long break.

Third place woman went to host club rider Deb Hutson-Lumb (Nova Raiders CC) who finished in 23-57.
