David Fellows (Solihull CC) was pushed all the way before taking a narrow victory by two seconds in the Bourne Wheelers 18.2, while Madeleine Gammons (Team Boompods) won the women’s event.

Fellows, who took victories in the Matlock CC 22 and Banbury Star Hardriders 23.5 before lockdown, showed his strength once again to win in a time of 38 minutes and 21 seconds.

He was pushed all the way by juvenile Jacob Bush, riding for the host club, who fell just two seconds behind the winner.

Bush finished second in the National Youth Championship the previous week and was on form once again on his local roads clocking an average speed of 28.45 miles per hour.

The CS/5 saw riders start and finishes in Edenham near Bourne, with competitors heading out and back on the A151 through Grimsthorpe and Corby Glen before rising for the turn at Colsterworth.

Fellows snatched victory away from 15-year-old Bush while Richard Sharp (Team Swift) completed the podium positions in 39-10.

Host club Bourne Wheelers showed the depth of their youth talent with Bush followed home by fellow juveniles Alex Galpin (4th in 39-50) and Dan Galpin (8th in 40-42).

Meanwhile, quickest veteran was Brett Harwood (Team Bottrill) finished seventh in 40-19.

In the women’s event under-23 rider Gammons recorded her first open victory of the season in a time of 46-46.

Sian Botteley (Cero/Cycle Division) finished second in 47-16 while veteran Christine Howard (Matlock CC) rounded out the podium positions in 53-14.
