Devon Primavera Road Race, Jonathan Tiernan-Locke Heads Start List!

Brief Results

Liam Bromiley (University of Bath CC) won the 53 mile Primavera road race in Devon. Bromiley, winner of the Frome & Dist WH 10 the previous week, escaped into the wind on the final circuit, riding solo all the way along the ridge back to Hatherliegh. Jonathan Tiernan Locke (Saint Piran) won the bunch kick for second place ahead of Fraizer Carr (University Bath CC).
Liam Bromiley.....
"I wasn't expecting too much going into the race, I know my form is currently quite good with a few decent results already this season, but would've been happy just to get in the points in what looked like a fairly strong startlist. I tried early on with some probing moves and a couple of short lived breakaways, deciding to then sit in the bunch for a lap or so before going again with a group of three others where we held the bunch off for probably 10k. When it was clear we were going to get caught by the bunch the others sat up, but with the final prime just up the road I kicked again and increased my lead. I wasn't really thinking I'd be able to hold them off for the remaining 30k, just thought I'd have a go with nothing to lose. The final 10k was hard into a headwind, though being predominantly downhill helped me finish the job.
I'm hoping to maintain my current run of form, entering some more National B races and time trials, with the BUCS TT's just round the corner in April I'm currently looking for a TT bike to help me achieve a decent result.
Primarily I aim to complete my Masters degree before a summer of committing to more training and racing, hopefully this season I can pick up some more strong results."

Former Sky proffesional Jonathan Tiernan-Locke heads the field at the Devon Primavera Road Races at Hatherleigh.In 2014, his 2012 Tour of Britain win was stripped following the identification of anomalies in his biological passport data from around the time of that race, and he was banned from competition until the end of 2015.Locke blamed the anomalies on alchol in his blood after a heavy night out.After serving his suspension Tiernan-Locke resumes racing on a 2nd category licence.Among those hoping to challenge the former pro will be Liam Walsh (VC Equipe– Flix) who finished 7th at last Sundays Perfs Pedal race, Edward Laverack (JLT Condor), Andy Shackell (Team Wiggle), Paul Double (VC Venta),Michael Cripps (Army CRT), Max Steadman (Pedal Heaven) & Primera-Teamjobs duo, Oscar Hutchings & Calum Croft.Marcin Bialoblocki (Onepro Cycling) won the race in 2015, with a five minute cushion.
