Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport event No.4 2022 - report

18 May 2022 18:10 | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Tomos Hales made it four wins in four events in the Decathlon Evening 10 Series by Wrekinsport despite a late course change to The Tiddly triangle circuit due to road works. Hales stormed around the course in 21 minutes 57 seconds, coping best with a stiff westerly breeze that hampered progress along the toughest part of the course between Hodnet and Stanton crossroads – the only climbing involved on this principally flat course. Hales saw off a determined effort of 23:04 from Phil Roberts, his best of the Series so far.

It was a close call for third with just three seconds separating Nova Raiders Ben Gilpin and Paramount CRT’s Chris Riley, with Gilpin getting the final podium place in 23:17. Meanwhile there were strong rides from Deb Hutson-Lumb, narrowing the gap to Clare O’Donnell at the top of the Women’s Series in 24:05 and taking 6th spot Overall; and 15 year-old Junior Ben Southgate with 24:14.

In the Road Bike Series it was a dead heat for the win between Chairman Dave Moore, riding a fixed; and Ben Wood, both crossing the line in 26:13. This proved vital to Wood, with that tie keeping him one point ahead at the top of the table.
