Location: Rake, Sussex
Event: 28 July 2013
Report: John Wilkinson/Snowdon Sports
South East Region champion Dante Carpenter secured his third road race win of the season as Pedal Heaven RT made numbers count in the closing stages of London Dynamo’s 75-mile Summer event on the Rake course, in Sussex.
Carpenter finished 12 seconds clear of the rest of a five-man break, who were led in by his team-mate Chris McNamara with third place going to Anthony Moye (Velo29-Blackhawk).
McNamara and Colton Jarisch (Felt-Colbornes-Hargroves RT), who came in fifth, broke away from the rest of the field on second of ten laps and stayed away until they were joined by a chasing trio of Carpenter, Moye and Tom Stockdale (Spin Rotor Primal C-Originals RT) going into the last three laps.
With the rest of the field now two minutes back the race was between these five, and under-23 Carpenter jumped away to claim the win with McNamara monitoring the rest before completing a perfect day for the team in the sprint.
