Having qualified for the event back in April around an undulating course in Market Harborough, the final provided a different challenge with a flatter circuit around Mallory Park being more suited to the bigger powerful riders.

However Evander (13) wasn’t fazed and set about the challenge in fine style by completing the 10 miles course in 24:50 to knock over a minute off his previous best time and finish just 12 seconds behind Essex Roads rider Ryan Jackson who took the National title.

Elsewhere Chris Shaw continued his excellent season with another great result. Following his 5256.3 miles at the National 12 hour event, he returned to Suffolk to take up the challenge of the 30 mile mile distance. In the CC Breckland District time trial his 11th place clocking of 1:05:14 set a new club record and a National Clarion age group record.
