Reece was the quickest junior in 22min 20sec, a personal best time that placed him 11th overall, while Adam recorded 25:35 two win first place in the juvenile category.

They were among 22 Witham Wheelers in the 121-rider field that tackled the Sleaford-Osbournby course on the A15.

Conditions were cool but fortunately the winds of earlier in the week were absent, with a only a light northerly breeze assisting the riders on the way out but not significantly hindering on the return leg.
