Pooley nabs British time trial title

Dowsett claims U23 crown

While the senior men tackled the three-lap course, there were some quality rides turned out in the other categories where two laps were covered.

Emma Pooley (Cervelo Test Team) proved 30 seconds faster than Wendy Houvenaghel (Science in Sport.com) in the women's event, while UTAG Yamaha's in-form Julia Shaw, the Hampshire rider who has broken three national records this season, took third, 1:04 slower than Pooley.

After his victory in the final round of the Premier Calendar Road Race Series the Richmond Grand Prix last week, Alex Dowsett (100 Per Cent ME) took victory in the espoirs category with a time of 42:37 which would've put him third in the senior men's event after two laps.

Chippenham and District Wheelers' Jeff Jones won the hotly-contested masters category with a time of 45:09 which would have put him tenth in the senior men's times after two laps.
