Antrobus, who had previously won the Hill Sprint and the 20-mile race, clocked 2 hours 36 minutes 39 seconds, clipping Cammie Adams into second spot. Adams’ time was 2 hours 36 minutes 41 seconds.

Zefal Bailey got the third place in 2 hours 36 minutes 50 seconds.

Antrobus, following the race, jokingly remarked that he had received a telephone call from Mark Cavendish, who gave him some race strategy. He was making reference to one of the top British cyclists.

The race saw the cyclists pedalling off from Howards Marine on Villa Flat, circuiting the Arnos Vale Roundabout to Ratho Mill route 10 times.

Covering the same distance was Peter Durrant, who was fourth overall in 2 hours 40 minutes 31 seconds. Durrant, however, claimed the over-35’s category. Second was Orel George in 2 hours 50 minutes and third was Desmond Cox.

Among the juniors who did 16 miles or four laps of the course, Quasim Thomas was again the boss, as he outrode the other two challengers. Thomas’ winning time was 1 hour 25 minutes 27.31 seconds.

Casnel Duncan was second in 1 hour 41 minutes 06.69 seconds, with Samuel Little third in 1 hour 41 minutes 11.77 seconds.

Okyra Sylvester was the lone competitor in the Mountain Bike segment. His time for four laps of the course was 1 hour 19 minutes 47.49 seconds.

The females did two laps or eight miles in a race which resulted in Neisha Alexander coming in first, as expected. Alexander’s time was 40 minutes 8.58 seconds and Ariel Durrant – second in 1 hour 29.1 seconds.
