Hayley Simmonds & Joshua Williams Win Classic Series Opener in Dorset

Hayley Simmonds (Team WNT Pro Cycling) emphatically won the opening round of the Knights Composites Classic Time Trial series in Dorset. Wearing the National Championship stripes, Simmonds punched her way around the rolling circuit, dismissing the keen northerly wind that heralded the start of British Summer time. A time of 55:33 for the 24 miles confirmed her early condition and put her 1:59 ahead of Elizabeth Banks (Sunsport Velo CC)
with Becky Lewis (Mid Shropshire Wheelers) a further 6 secs adrift in third place. The expected dual with Sarah Storey (Storey Racing) failed to materialise, the Paralympic champion forced to use a road bike after transmission problems left her TT machine unusable. (Storey had used the road bike to ride around the circuit with her teammates the previous day).
Elizabeth-Jane Harris carried the colours for the newly launched team, her 57:40 just missing the podium.
Joshua Williams (Team Bottrill/HSSHire), 48:34, won the senior mens race, a much closer affair with just 17 seconds between the 25 year from Shropshire and his teammate John Dewey.
Espoir, Jack Rebours, (Caesarean CC (Jersey), 50:27 surprised a few taking third spot, the third of six riders inside the course record of 51.12 on a sunny, breezy morning. Rick Waddon (Para-T) won the parcycling event, his factored time of 54:05 putting him clear of Liz Saul (London Dynamo), 1:00:07 and Paul Thomas (Brighton Mitre CC) 1:30:10. Peter Nicholls (Race Hub), 52:28 beat scratchman Danny Axford (Artic Tacx RT) by exactly 1 minute to take the veterans race, local rider John Samways (Bournemouth Jubilee Wheelers), recording a personal best on a course used for club events. Another local favourite won the Veterans Target race with a plus of 15:18with Seventeen year old Adam Robertson (Verulam CC) taking the junior title, his 54:20, 46 seconds to fast for Zak Coleman (Team
Rider Reaction
Hayley Simmonds
"it was a pretty tough course actually, a lot of the roads are quite dead and with the wind as well for the last nine miles, it was hard going. I am really pleased, the first time trial of the season is always a bit nervy, i know my training is going well but you never know how others are going. I was riding to power but on this course it is difficult to ride to average. I go over my threshold power on the climbs and then recover on the downhills, i had a 56 chainring on but even with that i was almost freewheeling on some of the downhills."

Joshua Williams
" I found it quite easy actually! Driving the course yesterday it looked quite challenging, but i felt good at the end. I caught my two minute man so i knew i was going well. I am riding the first four rounds of the series, me and my partner are getting married on June the 10th so i cannot ride that one, I need to nail the first four"

Rik Waddon
" it was alright, its a long way to come, with very little competition, i dont know why there are not more para riders, there are a lot of para road riders out there whether its the travelling around the country? i am not sure. I put a lot into it, i travel round to all the races and its slightly disheartening but at the end of the day its about putting a performance out but when there is no one to chase, you can lose motivation. Maybe they could put the Para riders off in the middle of the field?"

Peter Nicholls
"It was a good race, i came down from Leicestershire yesterday and drove around the course, the wind was a bit shocking in places. I came down with not a clue how i would go, i have been carrying an injury so i am very pleased with that, its good to blow the cobwebs away. I ride on power and feel, i like sporting courses, you wont see me on a dual carriageway, i like riding in the countryside!"
