Nicholas Narraway powers away to seal road race success
Nicholas Narraway was at his dominant best as he stormed to victory in the Winners Edge Road Race in Dockyard on Sunday.
Having found himself among the leading pack of Category A alongside Liam Flannery, overseas rider Bill Ash, Conor White and Alexander Miller for the majority of the race, Narraway seized the initiative late on, breaking away from his rivals to ride solo to the finish line in a winning time of 1hr 39min 1sec.
A little more than two minutes adrift and in an exciting finish between the rest of the pack, Miller claimed second place, pipping White and Flannery to the line.
In Category B, Wayne Scott took the top honours, finishing less than three seconds ahead of nearest rival Tracy Wright in a winning time of 1:33:19. Darren Glasford completed the podium places, finishing a further second behind in third place.
The most exhilarating conclusion of a race came in Category C where Kavin Smith pipped Otis Ingham to the line to claim victory by less than two seconds in 1:19:13. A further 43 seconds adrift, Anthony Dell Ricardo Smith wrapped up the top three positions, just a second ahead of Mark Hatherley in fourth place.
There was also joy for Charlotte Millington, who took the honours in the Women’s Division, crossing the line in 1:33:43, a little more than ten seconds ahead of nearest rival Wenda Roberts, who finished just a second ahead of Elizabeth Stewart.
Meanwhile, Narraway and White will be part of Bermudian contingent that will compete in the Pan American and Caribbean Cycling Championships, in the Dominican Republic, starting tomorrow and continuing until Sunday.
They will be joined by Kaden Hopkins, who is travelling from Spain, as well as Caitlin Conyers, who will make the trip from the United States.
