Also doing well was Darren Sharman (45:26), Laura Brown (46:27) Simon Wallace (47:02) and Philip Clarke (49:32).

In the Sprint event, Ray Reeves was first to cross the line for the Wheelers, followed by Darren Sharman, Laura Brown, Malcolm Macfarlane, Philip Clarke, Simon Wallace, John Brooks and Simon Kitching.

Meanwhile, in the Olympic distance, Clarke was particularly impressive as he finished sixth overall in two hours and nine minutes.
