Hayley Simmonds (AeroCoach) continued her stellar season with victory in the national 10 mile time trial. Her time of 21-28 was enough to beat her nearest rival by 35 seconds. Simmonds already held the 25 mile, 100 miles and British national champion titles this year and has now added the 10 mile distance her haul this season. Despite her dominance in time trialling over recent months, Simmonds was overlooked for the Rio 2016 Olympic Games1.

Emma Pooley rode the time trial in GB colours but finished down in 14th2. Henrietta Colborne (Team Ford Ecoboost) was the best of the junior women, her time of 23-23 enough to secure the win in that category. Adam Hartley (PH-Mas Cycling) was the quickest of the junior men with a time of 20-09 on the G10/42 course in Dorking, Surrey.

The result in the men s 10, which took place the following day on the P886 course in Hampshire, was much closer as Richard Bussell (AeroCoach) won by just four seconds to defend his title. Bussell s time of 20-35 was enough to knock James Gullen (Pedal Heaven) down into second place.
