Simon Richardson (

Richardson attacked the bunch within the final two laps of the 87-mile (140km) race around the vast Derwent Reservoir. He fought hard to stay away, and clinched the win 54 seconds ahead of second-placed Ian Wilkinson (Endura) and Sweden’s Nicolas Gustavsson (Team Sprocket ProCycling) in third.

    After an excellent preview this is a very disappointing report of the leading professional road race in the country that day.
    This reads like a summarised rehash of someone else’s report. The problem with that is that it relies on the original source being accurate which is not always the case.

    The rider in 5th place is actually Tobyn Horton of Team Sprocket ProCycling
