In the B category, 45 riders set off for 7 laps of the circuit (55 miles) and on lap 2 proceeded to set the fastest lap of the day at 18mins 50sec. Another clear winner in Malcolm Smith – St Ives CC in 2hrs 15mins, and 8 secs clear of Nigel Stephens – Finchley RT, with Simon Alexander a further second back.
As usual the B cat was the largest and fastest group with at least 30 of the 45 capable of being a medal winner including the top 10 riders from last weeks criterium championship - Paul came in ahead of all those.
|Mr Consistency - Paul Caton|
Team DS Nick Walker: "Another great result for Paul - he really is our top performer this year. To get top 10 at National level is pretty impressive but we know Paul's ambitions extend further than that."
