OLYMPIC Games gold medallist Hamish Bond won Worcester St John's Cycling Club's Rhydd 25-mile time trial for the Underwood Cup.

Nineteen riders tackled warm conditions and New Zealander Bond won in 48 minutes 38 seconds for an average speed of 30.8mph.

All-rounder Bond, 32, claimed gold in rowing's coxless pairs at London 2012 and Rio 2016 and bronze in this year's Commonwealth Games road cycling time trial in Australia.

Organisers believe the AeroCoach rider's effort on the Rhydd course is probably a club record if not an overall best for the course.

Simon Garrett was second in 56.40 and Russell Kingston third in 58.16.

The fastest road bike was ridden by David Pardoe in 62.48.

Mark Daffin clocked 59.27, Simon Adcook 59.40, Rob Nicholls 60.54, Jez Pile 61.04, Rob Kennard 63.05, Russell Middleton 65.06, Debbie Bradley 66.54, Stuart Parker 68.16, Sam Clarke 70.29, Andrew Russell 73.07, Rosalind Townsend-Hope 77.08, Debbie Hodson 77.20, Amanda Middleton 80.45, Derek Morgan 81.34 and Jennie Daffin 82.53.
