There were over 120 starters, which made for a long day. An already damp evening took a turn for the worse when the wind got up and rain welcomed the riders into the final mile of the course.
Ambrosini posted an impressive time of 20:50 and Sanders bagged a distance PB with 22:35. This is over a minute and a half off of Sanders’ previous best time, and points to the hard work he has been putting in ahead of the Island Games in June.
