Six Riders from Northumbria Police Cycling Club (NPCC) headed to Durham to defend their victory at last year's John Stoddard Emergency Services Support Race.
The race is held annually over the closed circuit of the streets of Durham City Centre prior to the OVO Energy Tour Series for the Pro riders.
Teams represented were Durham Police, Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue Service, North East Ambulance service, County Durham and Darlington Fire and Rescue Service and Northumbria Police.
The 1.4km circuit included a treacherous decent into a sharp right hand bend which leads directly to the cobbled climb up South Street.
Despite a valiant effort by all six and placing four riders in the top eight NPCC were unable to retain the Cup which was won by a combined team of Durham and Darlington and Tyne and Wear Fire and Rescue.
