Hannah Barnes won her first national time trial title as she and younger sister Alice took gold and silver at the British Road Championships.

Barnes crossed the line in 39 minutes and 38.145 seconds to beat Canyon-SRAM team-mate Alice by 17 seconds.

Storey Racing's Neah Evans won bronze over the 28.6km course.

"This is a target I had for the season so it's nice to have this jersey," said Hannah, who won silver in the event last year.

"To have Alice in second is pretty cool. There's not much rivalry between us - we've both focused a lot on our time trials this season, so coming into this we had a lot of help from our team."

Team Sky's Geraint Thomas won the men's time trial for the first time in his career.
