Biggest news of the weekend?

Spilak wins overall in Suisse – and the Russian team takes the GC at ZLM too with Goncalves; Dillier wins the Route du Sud for BMC or Cav shows form in Slovenia to get the Dimension Data management team off the Valliums?

None of the above.’

Adam Duggleby’s (Vive le Velo) 3:16:51 to break the British 100 mile time trial record on the e2/100, Newmarket course is the ride which has tongues wagging on this side of the Channel and North Sea.

The previous record was Charles Taylor’s (South Pennine Road Club) 3:21:31 set in 2015.

Danny Grieves’ (GS Metro) 3:20:27 will also go down as a record holder, the man from Mick Bradshaw’s club having finished minutes prior to Duggleby.

Peter Harrison (AS Test Team) 3:18:58 was also inside the old mark; as was the man we interviewed two years ago when we all thought he’d nabbed the record with his 3:18:54, reigning BBAR Richard Bideau – until the course was re-measured and found to be ‘short’ by 0.2 miles.
