One Pro Cycling swept the board with a 1,2,3 with 22 year old Sam Williams taking the chequered flag in the National B race over four laps of the rolling Vale of Glamorgan circuit on a mild, still and slightly damp Spring day.

Within 5 miles on the first lap a large fracture had appeared splitting the bunch in two, then One Pro pounced and struck out ahead with only Jake Alderman of Saint Piran following for company and this 4 man break distanced the main field by nearly a minute at the end of the first lap.

The pace clearly took its toll as the guys in white and blue stretched it out to a minute and half by the time they entered Cowbridge at the start of the third lap as Alderman had been shelled out by this point. Even a chasing group of 4 comprising Daniel McQuillan (Tri UK), Duncan Heywood (Saint Piran), Isaac Munddy (PMR@Toachim House) and Rhys Lloyd (Metaltek Kuota) couldn’t pull back the 3 man being driven by the likes of Kristian House and co.

Williams, Bayliss and House graced the line 1.40 from the next placed rider, Cardiff Ajax’s Ioan Smallwood who managed to break free on the long drag to the finish to take a creditable 4th.

In the Regional B (3,4 ) Race it took 6 attacks in the first 2 laps of the 28km circuit for a three man break to stick: Sion Harlow (Rhos onSea CC), Nathan Adams (Veloflow) and Tom Clements (Offcamber). This mixed group gained 50 seconds on the bunch by the start of the final lap (3). By Wick , Adams had been dropped by Harlow and Clements leaving a vulnerable 2 man at the mercy of a hard chasing pack.

On the Cowbridge bypass incline, Clements was swallowed up by the chasers leaving Sion Harlow to hold on in a sprint take the win from George Bazley of Bristol South Development Squad and Joe Rees of Cardiff Ajax CC – the hosts having the best set of results at home for many years.
