Stephenson Defends Title at The Divs!!

Will Stephenson (Primera/Specialized) defended his Southern Division Junior Title with some panache. Stephenson was away for most of the race with Mitch Webber (Andover Wheelers).

The pair had broken away on the second lap, chasing Simon Healy (Andover Wheelers). Healey was part of the supporting race that had started with the juniors and also included the women’s race. Stephenson & Webber made contact with Healey and the gap to the bunch would prove decisive.

Although in different races it was inevitable that Healey and Webber would work together, Stephenson was aware however and kept enough in the legs to attack through the feed zone. By the time he took the chequered flag he had a gap of more than 3 minutes on Webber and Healey, the latter easily winning the supporting race. Kimberly Ashton (Abergavenny RC) won the women’s title finishing ahead of Adele Tyson-Bloor.
New Womens Champion, 24 year old Kimberley Ashton said,"It was good fun, i have never ridden this course before, its hilly so it suits me down to ther ground. My aim was obviously to be first lady but if the juniors attack to try to go with them and see what happens. I am feeling strong at the moment and its nice to get a win. I have a week off then the Tour Series, the national series and the Nationals. I like the hills, i think if i am suffering then they must be"
