Alex Dowsett (Movistar) set a new British 10-mile time trial competition record on Saturday at the ECCA 10 in Cambridgeshire, clocking 17 minutes and 20 seconds.

British time trial champion Dowsett averaged 34.6153mph on the E2/10 out-and-back course on the A11 south-east of Cambridge to beat Michael Hutchinson’s previous mark of 17-45 set in 2012.

Dowsett is aiming to be part of Movistar’s Tour de France squad when the Spanish-based team departs from Leeds on July 5.

    In 1984, I did my best time as 13.30 on Reynolds 531 equivalent, Shimano 105 equipped bike, wearing Levi jeans, T-shirt, puma trainers, no aero bars or aero wheels, no helmet & I have long hair I didn’t tie back then, & it was nearer 11 miles distance I did. My average for 10 was 15.50 without pushing hard, why don’t they push themselves?
