Just four seconds separated the top two riders at the CC Weymouth 10-mile time trial on Easter Sunday, as Sam Wadsley (Primera-TeamJobs) took the win on the P451/10 course near Warmwell in Dorset.
Meanwhile young Storey Racing talent Lucy Gadd was fastest female, more than two and a half minutes quicker than the next best rider in the female category.
Wadsley, 23 and from Dorchester, clocked 20-53 to win from Felix Wilkinson (Tetbury Velos), while Espoir Josh Copley (TBW23) was third, another nine seconds back.
Just outside of the podium places in the men’s category was the promoting club’s own Andy Sloan who was just two seconds back in fourth with 21-08, but fifth by an even smaller margin was Wadsley’s team-mate at Primera-TeamJobs George Skinner who was just one second behind Sloan with 21-09.
In the veterans category overall fastest was Steven Pink (Poole Wheelers) whose time of 21-54 gave him seventh overall, which was 48 seconds better than second veteran Tom Clements (Wessex Road Club), while Bob Richardson (Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers) was third in that category with 23-07.
Gadd, the 19-year-old Bournemouth-based rider with Storey Racing, clocked 24-06 to place 19th overall and win convincingly in the women’s category from Louisa Cooper (Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers), while veteran Rachel Hackman (Royal Navy and Royal Marines CA) was third.
Top junior rider was Jamie Whitcher (Bournemouth Cycleworks) who, although he was the only junior in the field, clocked an impressive time of 21-17 for sixth place overall.
