PROLIFIC winner Sebastian Ader (a3crg) put seven seconds into Adam Topham (High Wycombe CC) and Conall Yates (In Gear Quickvit Trainsharp RT) to win Hampshire Road Club’s 10 at Liss on Saturday evening.
All three cracked off top quality 30mph-plus rides in an event run off in mainly sunny but breezy conditions: Ader clocked 19-52 while Topham, from Poole, and Yates tied with 19-59.
Totton’s Stephen Whitewick (VeloRefined Aerosmiths) took fourth with 20-15, CC Weymouth’s Greg Parker took seventh with 21-02 while the Waterside’s Ray Claridge (GA Cycles) was one place back with 21-21.
Olympic team pursuiter Joanna Rowsell (Wiggle Honda Women’s Pro Cycling) took 11th with 21-39 and Poole Wheeler Terry Icke was 16th with 21-54.
Bournemouth and Southampton area riders: Andrew Bryson (Peter Hansford Racing) 22-04, Andy Rivett (VC St Raphael) 22-38, Philip Connell (Sotonia CC) 24-17, Daniel Edwards (Sotonia) 24-45, Chris Summers (Sotonia) 27-52.
Gary Allan (GA Cycles) was among a contingent of early competitors which got caught in freezing rain and accompanying strong winds. He clocked a below par 25-09. New Forest CC’s Martin Balk and Bob Jolliffe also got a soaking and produced disappointing times of 30-35 and 30-57 respectively.
