The Ken Wright Memorial Road Race in Colchester, Essex was also the Eastern Regional Road Race Championship Race and was won by Richardsons-Trek RT rider Andrew Hastings.

The 33-year-old lined up along with 68 other riders to race the course which had to be changed at the last minute due to a triathlon being run nearby.

The majority of the course was the same as the one used for the Jock Wadley Memorial Road Race held back in March and conditions were perfect - the warm climate combining with a gentle south-westerly breeze.

The race came to life with three laps to go with Hastings and Metaltek’s Chris Bartlett moving clear of the rest of the bunch.

Bartlett attacked but Hastings came back at him on the brow of a hill 400 yards from the finish line. Hastings took off at a pace which Bartlett simply couldn’t keep up with and he went on to cross the line 10 seconds ahead of his rival.

Dominic Schils took third for Zannata CT, another 40 seconds behind Bartlett. The bunch were a minute behind.
