MACINTYRE BACK ON FORM IN RUDY PROJECT SERIES
PROVING he is fully recovered after crashing out of the Girvan Three-Day last month, Jason MacIntyre (The Edge Racing Team) took victory in the fourth round of the RTTC-Rudy Project Time Trial Series in Nottinghamshire on Sunday.
MacIntyre covered the distance in 55min 38sec, beating Julian Ramsbottom (Scunthorpe Poly CC) into second spot by 2-50, with Paul O’Mahoney (Pro Bike Kit) another 33 seconds off the pace.
The event, promoted by Doncaster Wheelers, took in two laps of a circuit based on North Wheatley near Gainsborough.
Warming up for his defence of the National 25-Mile Championship next month, MacIntyre covered the first lap in 27-11, while Ramsbottom and O’Mahoney were 1-15 and 1-19 slower respectively at that point.
In the one-lap women’s event, GS Strada’s Julia Shaw notched up her third victory in four rounds with a time of 31-05 to beat Sarah Bailey (VC St Raphael) by 47 seconds, while leading Espoir was Simon Baxter (Adept Precision RT) and fastest junior was Tom Yeatman (Agiskoviner.com) with 30-56.
