Peters Takes Gold in Junior 10!

Caitlin Peters (i-Team CC) won the National Junior 10-Mile Championships in Cumbria, clocking 24:00 on a windy day to claim the title by 17 seconds from Miriam Jessett (Tyneside Vagabonds CC). Fareham-based Peters who also won silver in the National 25 mile event and was celebrating her 16th birthday told "LR,LR"

"The course was more windy than I was expecting but luckily the rain held off. I could see my minute man for the majority of the ride and managed to catch her after 6 miles. The drag after the roundabout was hard as you were already in the red and were now facing the wind. With about a mile and a half to go I gave it everything all the way to the finish. I felt good,comfortable during the ride but wasn't sure that I'd won it. To find out I had was a massive relief and it's a great birthday present!!! Up until now I've had 4 over all 2nd places but to take the top spot this time felt awesome!"

In the junior mens Championship, Jacob Aries (Primera-teamjobs) came 7th in 21:06, with teammate Tom Temple, 9th, 21:19, Jake Wright (Zappis RT) took the title with 20.15.
