Pete pedals to the front

18:12 07 May 2013

Pete Vincent from Braunton thwarted Blake Pond’s attempt at a hat-trick of wins in the North Devon Wheelers-Southfork 10-mile time-trial race series.

He came home first among a 40-strong field in 21minutes 33 seconds – with Pond just 17 seconds behind.

Mark Lees was third in 22.22 and 40-year-old Graham Moir (4th - 22.27) from Bideford, racing his first club 10-miler of the season, finished fourth in 22.27.

The fight for age group points continued with Roger Sheridan from Georgeham, 12th overall in 24.05 taking the maximum for over-50s, 18 seconds ahead of his nearest category rival Chris Birch, 14th in 24.33).

Ray Retter’s aim for the over-60s championship looks more secure after finishing 13th in 24.32 to put nearly five minutes between himself and nearest age-group rival Graham Macdonald from Fremington.

Teenager Sean Henderson from Braunton (25.04) was disappointed with 17th position, despite being the fastest junior and driving a secure 1min 35secs barrier between himself and nearest age-group rival Justin Wright.

Zoe Betteridge rode the fastest woman’s time (25.19) to finish.

Dylan Smith (27th in 27.08) gained maximum points in the U14 age group, nearly two minutes better than nearest rival Evan Rouse.

The next 10-mile time trial race starts at Bishops Tawton Methodist Church at 7pm tomorrow, Thursday.
