Saturday and Sunday couldn't have been more different weatherwise for cycling enthusiasts.

But Saturday's grey skies didn't stop two tandem pairs from Cycling Club Breckland turning in some super fast times in the Eastern Counties Cycling Association's 10-mile time trial based at Six Mile Bottom, Suffolk.

Father and son Chris and Phil Nudds came third in the tandem event in 19:44 (a personal best) while club-mates Bobby De'ath and Iain Dawson finished not far behind in 20:03.

De'ath led the Breckland entry in the next day's Godric CC's promotion over 25 miles on the Earsham course.
