Storey to tell as Danny wins

Danny Storey.
Danny Storey.

Teenager Danny Storey entered his first road race on Sunday... and won.

Competing in the Pedal Pushers Circuit Series at Lincoln’s Yarborough circuit, the 16-year-old linked up with fellow Boston Wheelers Earl Taylor and Chris Clayton in the British Cycling Category 4 race.

A broken chain saw Earl retire, while Chris lost touch with the leading group, leaving Danny to ride the last half of the race alone with the lead group.

And a sprint finish saw him cross the finish line first - by a wheel’s length.

That moved Danny up the rankings to be a Category 3 rider after just one race.

Adrian Marshall has won the Wheelers’ 10-mile time trial series.

He wrapped things up last Tuesday in poor conditions, finishing in a time of 21 mins 53 secs.

Results: Adrian Marshall 21-53, Neil Coles 25-10, Neil Booley 26-53, Chris Clayton 27-09, Richard Cripps 29-19.

Private trials: Richard Hamblin 22-12, Gary Foreman 23-34, Alan Keys 24-11, Nick Milward 24-14, Richard Horton 24-30, Jonathan Self 27-20.
