Marcin Bialoblocki (One Pro Cycling) took victory by nearly three minutes in less than perfect conditions in the  Realteam 25, breaking the course record and setting a new Welsh 25-mile record in the process.

On the fast R25/3h course near Rhigos Bialoblocki had to tackle rain and wind but still managed an impressive time of 45 minutes and 29 seconds.

The fast course sees riders descend from the start near Merthyr Tydfil before travelling along the flat A465 towards Neath and making the return journey but finishing just as the road goes back up.

The Polish professional road rider, who has competed on the road in the UK for several years, took victory from Steven Irwin (North Lancs RC) who clocked 48.21.

Third place on the day was Ioan Smallwood (Cardiff Ajax) in 48.45 which was over 30 seconds slower than he clocked on the same course last month.

More details to follow as we receive them.
