A strong ride and good finish saw Brodie Catterick take ‘A’ grade line honours in Cuddon Cycling Marlborough’s ‘Summernite series’ Cycle World Graded Race No1 at Fairhall last Wednesday evening.
Good numbers saw four grades compete on the Benmorven circuit finishing with the Ridge Resort climb. The ‘A’ grade event over 38km saw only three riders together to contest the final climb with Catterick taking a convincing win over his Father Tony Catterick and Gerard van Antwerpen respectively. A large field in the ‘B’ grade 29km event saw seven riders go clear in the final stages with Junior under 17 rider Ethan Batt taking taking victory from Marty Bruce and another junior under 17 rider Dylan Vile. The ‘C’ grade 29km event saw a nice even pace throughout with young Christopher Grammer going clear at the finish from Lance Spencer and Kat Bamfield respectively. The ‘D’ grade 20km event saw the small field split up with Shaun Woods winning from Robin Mortimer with Connor Guillemot a couple of minutes back in third place.
