It was the turn of the juniors to shine as they recorded podium places and impressive wins for Ely & District Cycling Club - B&T Motor Repairs.
Harvey Woodroffe returned to action for the first time after suffering a crash last month with a resurgent performance at the First City Crits Inc race in Colchester.
Woodroffe was in the six-strong lead group, but a tactical confusion amongst the chasing pack saw the youngster sprint for second place.
Teammate Tom Lewis raced in the regional national youth 10-mile race near Bungay last weekend, his first open time trial, coming second to qualify for the National Youth Championships.
Tom’s father Martin finished the same course one minute and 20 seconds faster than his son in a time of 24:17.
