Guernsey VC – Weekend Round Up

Another busy week both on and off road saw started with Wednesday’s Flyers Youth MTB race league. U16 rider Dan Clark once again took top spot ahead of Chay Kennedy-Cook and Charlie Tourtel in both races, and followed this up with a solid 7th place in the seniors race at Thursday’s Ian Brown Cycles MTB Summer XC Series 3rd round.

Brad Vaudin (feature pic), winner of the last round just the previous Sunday, also took the win at the shorter crit race held at Belgrave Vinery. He pipped Matt Osborn for the top spot after 10 laps of the flat but muddy course, with Mark Le Page not far back in third for his best result of the season so far.

Saturday’s third round of the 10 mile TT series saw Marc Cox (below) once again take the honours on the Vazon TT course, coming close to the 20-minute mark on a day when several riders posted PBs and Helena Duguid claimed an U16 girls club record of 25:32 in the damp but benign conditions. His time of 20:06 put him well clear of youngsters Oscar Webber (21:35) and Jack Reed of CC Plancoët (21:53), with veteran Alex Margison (22:16) the only other rider under 23 minutes back in fourth.

Bank holiday Monday’s 75km road race in glorious weather on the 15km lap Frie Baton circuit featured a short sharp climb to the finish, and it was once again Marc Cox (below) who proved to be head and shoulders above the rest. Having pushed the early pace in a two-man break with Mike Serafin, who cracked on the last lap, he finished on his own over a minute clear of the rest of the field with James Roe in second and an impressive ride from Veteran Andy Gibson taking third.
