Celebrating their first-ever win in an open event Breckland's Don Saunders and grandson Declan Davis beat club-mate Martin Badham and Ray Legg, West Suffolk Wheelers in the tandem event with their time of 24 minutes exactly to the other pair's 28:48.

Fastest Breckland rider was Alan Stevenson with his 22:46 ride while young Adam Cross achieved yet another personal best time of 23:40.
