Paralympic champions Steve Bate and Adam Duggleby claimed both the time trial and road race golds at the 2018 National Para-cycling Road Championships in Rochford.
The tandem duo dominated in both races to earn their national champions’ jerseys in Essex.
Bate (Para-T) and Duggleby were almost five minutes quicker than any of their rivals in the time trial, stopping the clock over 32km in just under 40 minutes.
Over the circuit road race, the pair completed 19 laps within the hour allowed, one more than any other duo.
Another golden Nationals weekend for @a_duggleby and I this weekend. Great to see new tandems in the mix, really positive for the future of Para racing.
