GALLERY: Pictures from Plymouth Corinthian’s South Brent Road Race

CYCLISTS had to battle through a torrential rain during the closing stages of Plymouth Corinthian’s South Brent Road Race on Sunday.

Road races have been in short supply in the South West over the last 18 months due to the Covid-19 pandemic and the weekend’s event provided some good racing, despite the conditions.

The event for category two, three and four riders, saw them compete over 60 miles – six laps of the well-known Avonwick time trial course.

It was relatively dry for the riders over the opening couple of laps but the rain got heavier and heavier as the race went on making it very tricky.

However, Caffi Gruff’s Edward Morgan managed to negotiate the conditions and the course well enough to take the win. He did take an early lead but Exeter Wheeler’s Jack Dallyn closed the gap on the final lap only for the Welsh rider to dig deep to hold off the Devon man, who took second.

Third place went to Wessex’s Toby Manning, with Meudon Pedal Heaven’s Matthew Houlberg fourth and Momentum’s Daniel Rees fifth.
