Stephenson Delivers Win for Primera/Specialized

Will Stephenson (Primera-Specialized) won his first E/I/2 race after a fine team performance at the Mountbatten Centre, Portsmouth. The Easter Criterium was the first race this year to feature the whole four man Primera team and there was not a move they didn’t cover. Toby Neave escaped with the experienced Rowan Horner (VC ST Raphael/Waites Contracts) the pair stayed away for half the race but were eventually brought back. The final break went with 15 laps remaining and all four Primera men made the selection. 5 laps to go and Neave and Stephenson attacked, with Jason Eastwood and Ian Legg left marking the break it was race over. Neave set Stephenson up and the seventeen year old delivered. Tim Elverson (Pedal Heaven) took second ahead of Neave, whose job was done. Stephenson had been in action the day before at the famous Herne Hill Good Friday track meeting and next week rides the junior Tour of the Mendips.
