England's Julia Shaw won a bronze medal in the women's time trial at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in Delhi, India, on Wednesday.
Forty-five year old Shaw clocked 39 minutes and nine seconds on the flat 29 kilometre course on the Noida Expressway.
Canada's Tara Whitten added a gold medal to her two bronze medals won on the track in the points race and individual pursuit, with a time of 38 minutes and 59 seconds. New Zealand's Linda Villumsen secured silver.
Northern Ireland's Wendy Houvenaghel rode strongly to finish in sixth place, with Emma Trott (England) in eighth.
Newly-crowned Time Trial World Champion Emma Pooley (England) struggled in the hot and windy conditions, still suffering with lack of form since an illness before the road race, and finished ninth. The flat course in Delhi was a stark contrast to the hilly course in Melbourne where Pooley won her rainbow jersey.
Shaw is well known on the British time trial scene, where she has won the 2010 National 10, 25 and 50-mile time trial titles. Shaw also won her fourth British Best All-Rounder title this year.

Nigel Wynn worked as associate editor on CyclingWeekly.com, he worked almost single-handedly on the Cycling Weekly website in its early days. His passion for cycling, his writing and his creativity, as well as his hard work and dedication, were the original driving force behind the website’s success. Without him, CyclingWeekly.com would certainly not exist on the size and scale that it enjoys today. Nigel sadly passed away, following a brave battle with a cancer-related illness, in 2018. He was a highly valued colleague, and more importantly, n exceptional person to work with - his presence is sorely missed.
