Dominique Mayho suffered heartbreak during Sunday’s Gnosis Criterium in the City of Hamilton.

The multiple Sinclair Packwood Memorial Race champion led the field on the final sprint to finish with victory well within grasp when disaster struck.

The chain on Mayho’s bike popped off its sprocket, rendering the experienced cyclist powerless the rest of the way, as he was overtaken by Conor White and Alexander Miller.

Seizing his moment, White then held off the charging Miller to clinch Category A honours by a whisker in a close finish, with Mayho ranging across the line in third to round off the podium.

White, Miller, Mayho and Nicholas Pilgrim were among the front pack throughout the race where the lead changed hands on multiple occasions as they mounted a series of attacks.

The battle for honours in the Category B race also went down to the wire in a sprint finish.
