Youngsters Brodie Catterick and Peter Crampton finally topple time trial stalwart Ray Dunstan in Cuddon Cycling Marlborough’s Summernite Series, Cycle World Time trial No3 at Fairhall last Wednesday evening.
Warm and windy conditions saw a great tussle between the top riders on the 16km New Renwick Road/Godfreys Road out and return course. Strong head winds on the outward journey certainly ruled out any records, but all riders were relieved on the home leg with speeds up to 65km being reached. It was Catterick that had the edge in recording a good 21m 27s on the night to take victory over Crampton (21m 33s) and Dunstan (21m 34s). The sealed handicap also went to Catterick by a mere 2 seconds over junior under 17 rider Dylan Vile and another 1 second to another junior under 17 rider Ethan Batt.
