It was an extremely tight battle for second, with the team of Neil Palmer and Andy Bowser pipping a very impressive Chris Ward and Kieran Buffham (road bike) with only two seconds separating them.

Matt Chapel and Mark Hills combined for a strong fourth place finish ahead of Dan Warner and Gareth Richards.

Of the mixed pairings, it was returning rider Chris Bettinson and Susie Hall who just beat Julie Wright and Simon Howard with times of 29:47 and 30:14 respectively.

It was the Tour of Cambridgeshire closed roads time trial on Saturday.

The 16.4-mile course started from the Peterborough Showground and looped out towards Folksworth and back.

In the individual event, Spalding had a sole representative in Barry Drew who came home in a fantastic sixth place in his age category after battling the windy conditions in a time on 50:01.

The team event took place over the same course, and again Spalding had representation.

Their quartet consisted of Kieran Buffham, Josh and Frazer Wallis as well as ex-JLT Condor rider Ali Slater, who now represents Clancy Briggs Cycling Academy.

The four-man team combined to take a dominant victory by nearly five minutes after stopping the clock in a time of 35:52.

In a packed week of racing for the club, Sunday saw Matt Chapel and Mark Hills take on the Wisbech 25-mile time trial.

It was the first time for both riders time trialling on a dual carriageway course, and it proved a successful day with Chapel finishing with a new personal best of 59:26 that was enough to take seventh overall.

Hills battled blustery conditions to finish off a strong week for the club with a time of just over the hour.
