Kamden Reedy (Dymag T-1-D) won the Primera Purbeck road race, dropping his two breakaway companions on the penultimate climb of East Creech hill above Poole Harbour. Chris Courage (Bournemouth Jubilee Wh) had dangled off the front on the first lap and primes at the finish line of each lap helped split the race early doors, with riders keen to earn a tenner.

Greg Lancaster(VC Bristol/Webbs of Warmley)also enjoyed some air off the front but it was just an appetiser for the main to come. Reedy attacked on the third of eight 5 maps laps of the Furzebrook circuit, pulling away with Tim O’Rourke (Twickenham CC), Paul Double (Velo Club Venta) & Carl Silver (Bournemouth Jubilee). Silver quickly dropped back but the other three pressed on with what turned out to be the race winning move.


A 15 second gap on lap 3 grew to 50 seconds by lap 5 as the bunch failed to mount an effective chase. By the sixth passage of East Creech the trio had 1:15 and were cleaning up the primes between them. Eighteen year old Double was feeling the pace, O’Rourke gave him a helping push on the lower slopes and in doing so dropped his chain and it was race over for the good Samaritan! Double also ended his day in the sun, falling back to the tiring bunch.

Reedy, an aerospace engineer from Arizona had been the strongest in the break and enjoyed a solitary last lap before celebrating across the line, 1:23 clear. He likes the more aggressive racing this side of the pond but is not so keen on the “small roads” Oliver Yates (RN &RM CA) clipped off the front on the hill to take second with Jordan Frampton (Primera-UK Biking) winning the sprint for third.

The Primera sponsored race was the first of two races on the tough Furzebrook circuit, the second date in September to be confirmed.
