As their last farewell event in VCB colours before swapping for DAP CC's navy blue, green and white, Richards, Gentry and Nick Esser took part in the Diss CC men's road race and had sound results.
The weather stayed dry in the men's race, though not in the ladies' one, and a bit of action on the front broke the peloton up two thirds of the way through the race.
Richards finished 14th, four ahead of Gentry and both in the bunch, with Esser not so swift.
There was one rider clear, Jim Bradford of Cambridge CC, followed by three riders together just 11 seconds later and the bunch thundered in after about six more seconds, all given the same time but recorded in the right order by the timing chips.
John Thompson rode the Suffolk Lanes Extravaganza 210km (131.25 miles) audax organised by CC Sudbury and based at Bildeston and he took 12 hours to complete the distance.
The route was via Wickham Skeith, Halesworth, Iken, Orford, Rendlesham and Framlingham and then broadly via Debenham and Needham Market back to Bildeston.
