Ed­wards takes gold

Harefield Gazette - - SPORT -

WEST Dray­ton Moun­tain Bike club’s Sam Ed­wards stormed to a win in the four-hour Brass Mon­keys en­durance event in Yate­ley, Hamp­shire, at the week­end.

Ed­wards, who has made phe­nom­e­nal progress over the last two years, was in sec­ond place af­ter the first of seven laps but once he had moved into the lead dur­ing the sec­ond lap, he was never again bested and took a com­fort­able win.

Fur­ther down the field, club­mate Nick Try posted con­sis­tent lap times as he took 12th, while in the vet­er­ans’ two-hour event, new re­cruit Paul White just missed out on the podium as he took fourth, with race novice Will Black­ham fin­ish­ing 37th.

In the three-hour Grand Vets event, mean­while, Rick Feather­ston was just slightly off the pace of race win­ner Nigel Brown and had to set­tle for sec­ond place, with Jesse Kelly cross­ing the line 11th.
