Chrono des Nations time trial

Congratulations to Hayley Simmonds and Edmund J Bradbury for their impressive performances at the Chrono des Nations time trial last weekend, a UCI 1.1 race held in Vendee, France.

Simmonds, racing in the Elite/U23 women’s race against multiple national and international time trial champions, finished in a respectable 10th place after an unfortunate crash in the wet which saw her slip from a promising 1st place at the half way time check.

Bradbury, racing in the U23 men’s race, finished 1 minute 46 seconds behind the eventual winner, earning him a 3rd place in his first ever UCI race.

The duo will be looking to bring their seasons to a close this weekend with solid performances at the BUCS and National Hill Climb Championships on Saturday and Sunday respectively, along with Felix Barker, who has just returned from Italy where he has been competing in UCI races with Cycling Team Friuli. Good luck!
