Gentry breaks his TT duck
A grey wet and blustery weekend in the Waveney Valley was enlivened by a first ever open time trial win by Lowestoft fastman Liam Gentry. This came in the East Anglian CC 10, where the VC Baracchi man recorded 22:04 on the Bungay to Redenhall and back course, despite intermittent rain and a strong crosswind. Best veteran on standard was John Adams (Stowmarket & District CC)
Next morning 50-year-old Bury St Edmunds rider Brian Phillips reminded us how quick he is by winning in the East Anglian CC 25 on the same road in 56:41, with Gentry second, just three seconds slower.
The Herts Wheelers road race ended in a five-up sprint won by Jim Moffat of Spirit Racing with Ipswich Bicycle Club’s Phil Hetzel taking third place. The five were the survivors of a early break, at one time containing 15 riders, which stayed clear for the rest of the race.
