Dominique Mayho powered his way to victory in the Victoria Park Criterium on Sunday.

The experienced rider led from the start on the way to capturing the Adult ‘A’ title with a time of 42 min 29sec, crossing the finish line on Dundonald Street more than a minute ahead of nearest rival Alexander Miller (43:36sec).

Miller held off a charging Jackson Langley, who finished five seconds behind him in 43:41 to complete the podium finishers.

Annabelle Miller pipped Charlotte Millington for the women’s title in an exciting sprint to the line after both riders stopped the clock at 31:40sec. Carina Bortoli, the remaining competitor in the women’s field, crossed the finish six seconds later in 31:46.

The Adult ‘B’ title went to Ollie Hayward, who posted a time of 43:01, with Darren Glasford (43:44) taking second a mere two seconds ahead of third-place Alan Mooney, who crossed the line in 43:46.

Panzy Olander claimed the Adult ‘C’ title in 30:42sec followed by Dylan Eiselt (31:13) and Jens Drea (31:35).

In the junior divisions, Lucas Bule edged out Jasper Lau in the 13-14 age group after another mad dash to the finish line with the pair stopping the clock at 21:01 with promising runner Kelise Wade taking third in 21:32.

Zara Bule captured the 12 and under title in 22:20sec followed by Walker Smith, who claimed the silver medal in 22:44 and Jacob Leclerc the bronze in 22:53.

Race director Mark Booth chalked up the event as a success despite the inclement weather challenging the participants.

“It's the first day back for road racing, the first race of the season so to speak and it was well attended,” he told The Royal Gazette.

“We had close to 50 riders out and good racing action for what is shaping up to be a nice season.

“We had some of the juniors back because of the Easter break so it was nice to see them on the road.

“The weather was a bit touch and go with some rain showers coming through, which made the course a little slippery on the corners, so the riders had to pay attention.”
