Sam Wadsley

Sam Wadsley (Primera TeamJobs) and Lucy Gadd (Poole Wheelers) were fastest male and female riders respectively at the Tornado RCC 10-mile time trial in Hampshire on Sunday.

20-year-old Wadsley clocked an impressive 22-45 to win convincingly by runner-up Neil Mackley (Fareham Wheelers), the 55-year-old who clocked 23-24. Third spot went to Sarum Velo’s Callum Dunford with 23-31, despite the 21-year-old competing on a road bike.

Gadd, 17, went 42 seconds quicker than she did on the same course back in March to win the women’s prize as well as the junior award. Her time of 27-05 was 21 seconds quicker than second-placed Kirsty McSeveney (Fareham Wheelers), while third fastest female was 57-year-old vet Michelle Walter (Bournemouth Arrow CC) with 29-50.

Mcseveney was one of the three riders in the winning team, with Neil Mackley and David Dalton joining her in posting a combined 1-16-40, while Mackley was also the fastest veteran on standard with +3-45.

Wadsley’s win is one of several good performance this season.

Lucy Gadd

He won the Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers 25 in July, and the same club’s 10-mile event in June.

And earlier in the season he was victorious in the Bournemouth Junilee Wheelers 40km event in April, as well as the CC Weymouth 10.

He has made the trip to South Wales to ride the R25/3h course four times this season in pursuit of a fast 25-mile time, which resulted in him clocking a personal best 49-01 in August.

Gadd’s win over Mcseveney comes after she had to settle for second spot behind her rival in the Tornado RCC event on the same course in March
