Dean Robson (Northover VT/Rudy Project) claimed overall victory at the Chippenham and District Wheelers 10-mile race with a convincing display.

Robson has been pretty consistent this season across a variety of distances, claiming top five finishes in all of the first three rounds of the Knight Composites Classics Series as well as wins at the Bath CC 24 and Gillingham & District 19.

He blitzed the field of 25 finishers on Saturday with a convincing display on the B4042 course that starts and ends near Brinkworth, reputedly the longest village in Britain.

Stopping the clock at 20.31, he was the only rider under the 21-minute mark, claiming victory by 42 seconds.

Tavis Walker of DRK Racing finished second, matching his result at the Gloucester City CC 25 last month, whilst Neil Dunnage (Cotswold Veldrijden) was third and fastest veteran on the day in 21.57.

Jenny Simmonds (London Dynamo) claimed the women’s prize in equally comfortable manner.

She stopped the clock in a time of 25.04, a minute faster than her nearest opponent Emma Angove, representing the host club.
