Chalking up his fourth win of the series, local man John Whittington (Team Diabetes UK) broke away on the first lap of and was never seen again as he recorded an impressive Western League victory in Giant CC’s round at Warmley Country Park.
The 25-year-old Bristol rider’s smooth style masked his speed across the slick grassy sections as he raced to a clear win ahead of 15-year-old Matt Fratesi (Severn RC) who, on his mountain bike and starting a minute later with the youth field, powered his way through the seniors before getting the better of Peter Kench (Banjo Cycles) in a hard-fought tussle for second place overall.
The veterans honours went to Martyn Green (Bristol CX) ahead of Tony Davis (Dream Cycling) who put in a strong effort but couldn’t get up o the winner even with help of a bike change.
