CYCLING: Fresh from his holiday in the French Alps, Wyre Forest rider Justin Walters lost no time getting back into race mode finishing in 10th place with a time of 21 minutes and 18 seconds in the promoted 10 miles time trial.

However, wife Lucy was in even more devastating form taking over 40 seconds off her previous best performance with a time of 23 minutes and 44 seconds for second Lady and 45th overall from an entry of 91 riders.
