Guernsey cyclist Karina Bowie says the island's riders are gelling well in preparation for the Commonwealth Games.
Bowie is part of a four-strong women's road race team led by former national hill climb champion Ann Bowditch, along with Jo Watts and Marina Bleasdale.
"We've done a lot of races off-island together and we've gelled really well," Bowie told BBC Radio Guernsey.
"It's a great team, we've got great morale and great motivation and a great team leader in Ann."
Bowie broke Bowditch's five-year-old 25-mile time trial Guernsey record at the weekend, becoming the second woman on the island to break the one-hour mark as she finished in 59:49, 10 seconds inside the old mark.
"The course on the island we have has a lot of corners and turns so it's difficult to ride it at a consistent 25mph.
"In the UK it's a lot easier to do that because you have dual carriageways to race on, but it's a difficult task over here.
"So it's great to see that all the training and hard work that myself and the team have been doing is all coming together," she added.
