It’s Wells done for Adrian in the PACTRAC race at Oun­dle

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

ADRIAN Wells won the sec­ond race of the PACTRAC Mini-Se­ries at Oun­dle in only his sec­ond out­ing in the event.

Wells, fourth in the opener two weeks ear­lier, im­proved his times in all three dis­ci­plines to knock 75 sec­onds off his per­sonal best.

Ste­wart Moore led at the end of the 400 yards swim, storm­ing to a time of 4.27 to lead by nine sec­onds from Jon Rat­cliffe. Wells was a fur­ther 49 sec­onds down, hold­ing a 10 sec­onds ad­van­tage over Jaap Flik­weert who led the chas­ing group.

Wells hit the front on the 10-mile bike stage only to be caught by Flik­weert and twice se­ries cham­pion Dave All­sop.

The trio were close to­gether com­ing off the bike and had more than a minute’s lead over Chris Bren­nan in fourth go­ing into the 3.5-mile run.

Flik­weert is still re­cov­er­ing from an Achilles in­jury so took it easy on the run, al­low­ing All­sop to briefly lead early into the run.

But Wells then blasted into the lead and made the race his own, cross­ing the line a minute-and-a-half clear of All­sop with Bren­nan third.

Roz Giles was just in­side the hour to fin­ish first woman while Gary Eames broke 60 min­utes for the first time.

The se­ries tro­phy is awarded on a points ba­sis with the top 10 in each race re­ceiv­ing 10 points down to one, and the best five re­sults to count. Christophe De­Moulin has an early lead with 19 points, thanks to win­ning the novice race a week ear­lier.
