Former WorldTour rider and UK time trialing newcomer James Shaw headed a Ribble-Weldtite top four at an undulating Leicestershire Road Club time trial on Sunday.
The Continental-level team had decamped to Leicester for a team camp on Friday. The whole squad then entered the time trial over 27.2 miles on quiet roads, with only road bikes allowed.
Shaw, taking part in his first-ever open time trial, took victory in a time of 59 minutes and 45 seconds, the best of seven Ribble-Weldtite riders across the top 10.
Last year’s 10-mile national champion Dan Bigham was 15 seconds behind his teammate while Matt Gibson was a further five seconds back in third.
Shaw said: “I knew how fast I could ride but didn’t know what was going to happen with other riders like Bigham.”

Cycling 20 March, 1946 - Cycling and Britain's war effort
Unsurprisingly the war continued to loom large over the country in 1946. Manufacturing was key to the country getting back on its feet as Dunlop proudly exclaimed on the cover that they were backing Britain’s recovery. And not just making tyres. The 583 products they were involved in making in various factories included hot water bottles, gas cylinders, shoes (or at least the soles), hosepipes, armchairs and beds, or parts of.

DAYS: JAN TAKES CLAIRE HOSTAGE
After discovering that Belle and Shawn know she woke up from her coma and left the hospital on the night Charlie died, a furious Jan holds Claire at gunpoint and reveals that yes, she is the one who killed Charlie. “Jan loves to be in control and Jan thinks she’s smarter than everyone, so she’s obviously gone to great lengths to plan this murder and fake a portion of the coma,” points out her portrayer, Heather Lindell. “She is excited to finally be rid of Belle and be with Shawn, so this is kind of her moment, where everything that she’s ever been dreaming of is coming together. So then to find out that someone outsmarted her and out manipulated her? That’s the thing that makes her totally crack. That, coupled with the fact that she assumed Claire would be very, very grateful to her and Claire is anything but. Claire is still telling her, ‘I don’t want to be your friend, I don’t want you to be my stepmom,’ and Jan is confused, like, ‘Why wouldn’t you want me to be your stepmom? We’re going to be family.’ So now she’s like, ‘You know what? I’m done. I’m going to get rid of all of you to get what I want.’ ”
