Inter-Insular Road Race Champs – Seniors

Race Report

Velo Sport Jersey’s Sam Firby dominated his categories against strong competition from both Jersey and Guernsey riders on the Watersplash circuit on Sunday.

Fifty riders lined up in wet and windy conditions in the second road race of the season. Each race counts as qualification towards the Natwest Island Games in July.

The senior men, including 14 visiting Guernsey riders, climbed Jubilee Hill for the first of 6 laps at a brisk pace with several riders unable maintain the pace of the group and being left behind. After two laps, Firby broke away taking with him Guernsey’s Ian Brown and Jamie Barker os VSJ. The three stayed away from the main chasing pack with Barker eventually giving way to the speed of Firby and Brown to rejoin the main bunch at the top of the final climb.

Firby out-paced the Guernsey competition at the finish with Barker showing his sprinting ability by leading home a group of 20 riders for 3rd place, two minutes later.
