2012 Ajax Open 10 TT Report & Pictures

On a day when most of Wales was either at or supporting another slightly larger sporting event, a full field gathered for Cardiff Ajax’s open 10 mile time trial.

This year’s race saw the return of local lad Luke Rowe, fresh from his Team Sky exploits, to show the rest of us how we should ride the R10/16a course at Cwmcarn: the last indeed shall be first in his case with a cracking 20:07 in less than ideal, early season, conditions.

Strong performances were also made by Keiran Davies of Bynea CC with 20:48 and Scott Davies of M&D Cycles Kinetica in 3rd place with 20:05

First lady was Lowri Bunn of Abergavenny CC with a creditable 24:39. The winning Junior was Geriant Manley of Cardiff Jif with 23:02 , 1st Juvenile , also of Jif, Rhys Britton with 27:01 and 1st Juvenile another Jif with 27:57.
