Peterborough Cycling Club’s annual road races, sponsored by Alston Country Homes, took place on a testing circuit around Glatton, Lutton, Hemington and Great Gidding on Sunday, with strong winds making it even more challenging than usual.
Team Wiggins sent three riders who were prominent in the national race over sixlaps. One of the trio, Daniel Patten from Essex, won it after a solo breakaway and they also won the team prize.
Peterborough Cycling Club’s Jason Burrell finished a creditable 26th ahead of some semi-professional riders, and described it as “the hardest race I’ve ever ridden.”
The regional race over four laps was won by newcomer Alexandar Richardson. Peterborough riders fared well with a top 10 place for Matt Garfield and top 20 places for Steve Wood and James Boardley.
