Kieran Brady wins 2014 Bob Whitear Memorial

Posted 01/06/2014 - Nicholas Esser

Report: Snowdon Sports

NOTCHING up his second victory in three weeks, Kieran Brady (City Cycle Centre) sprinted to victory in the Bob Whitear Memorial Road Race in Norfolk on Sunday.

The 19-year-old from Soham won a three-up sprint finish to the 82-mile race around Wicklewood, which took in seven laps of an 11-mile circuit and attracted 42 riders.

It became clear from the off that the race would split up with early attacks going off and being pulled back, but on the penultimate lap a break got clear and finally looked like staying clear.

Having bided his time while the early attacks went, Brady made his way up through the field and hit the front to form an 11-rider leading group. As more came across from the bunch the strong men went clear again, and Brady won the sprint finish, with Tom Fitzpatrick (Terra Safety Shoes) taking second and George Wood (Richardsons-Trek) third.

“The first half of the race was stop/start,” said Brady, who also won the Southend Wheelers Andrews Trophy last month. “A few moves went but nothing stuck. With about 30 miles to go the first serious break got a decent gap, and the group I was in rode across to them to make it about 11 riders.

“With half a lap to go another group came up to us, and one of them – Alistair Kay – rode through and took Fitzpatrick with him. I got their wheel and George Wood came too, and we stayed clear to the end.”

Kay dropped off in the closing stages, and crossed the line fourth, roughly ten seconds off the pace and at the head of a chasing group of four.
