Cam Pelly of Exmouth's cycle club Cycle Sport Dynamo pulled off a stunning win in the regional junior road race championship at Hatherleigh on Sunday. Cam rode a blistering race around the 55 miles of 'lumpy' Mid Devon to win the title from a prestigious field of some the region's and the UK's top junior (aged 16-17) riders.
Cam was supported by fellow club members Ryan Dunn and Charlie McFadzean and they were all in the mix from the start of the race. At around 30 miles in, Charlie and Cam found themselves on the front with a 10 second gap and, as they recounted after the race, they looked at each other and said - 'lets have a go!' The gap was soon at 1 minute and they were working like clockwork together with panic mounting in the group behind as they realised those 'little guys' in green from Exmouth could win the race. Disaster struck Charlie as he punctured with about 10 miles to go and was out of the race, but Cam stuck at it on his own and blasted his way to the finish with the pack unable to catch him. Stunning rides from Cam and Charlie, and well done Ryan who finished strongly in the group, to take 5th Place.
The Wednesday night time trials are fast approaching as the Racing Season gets well and truly under way.
The schedule of events is listed below, taking the usual format with the first two events being OPEN events organised by the Sid Valley and Exeter Wheelers respectively. These two events are "OPEN EVENTS" which means that you have to enter in advance either on-line via the CTT web site or by downloading an entry form and entering by post TWO WEEKS before the event - (so for the first event on 6 May that means entering it before 22 APRIL
Note: For Open events you must be a member of a CTT affilliated club - such as CS Dynamo
All of the remianing events on the schedule below are CLUB events (or Cycling Time Trial B Events). These events can be entered on the night of the event and no entry form is required, (However - all under 18's must provide a completed and signed parental consent form).
The entry fee for each event is £4.00 (subject to confirmation).
If you are not a member of an affilliated club you can still ride a "CLUB EVENT" by paying an additional £1.00 + the £4.00 entry fee. Why not come and give it a go - see what tme you can do over a measured 10 mile distance - then see if you can beat it the next time.
