Images from the 2016 Jock Wadley Memorial Road Race, won by Jacob Hennessy

Jacob Hennessy (Spirit Bikes Racing Team) claimed the victory in the 34th Jock Wadley Memorial Road Race in Colchester, Essex, on Sunday.

Hennessy out-sprinted Lloyd Chapman (Pedal Heaven) to take the win, with George Wood (Richardsons-Trek RT) rounding out the podium in third place.

The race was also notable for the presence of former individual pursuit world champion Colin Sturgess. The 1989 world champ, now 47, made his return to racing in 2014 after a 14-year break. He finished in 48th place.

Last year’s winner, Steele Von Hoff, was absent – the Australian now rides fro One Pro Cycling, who did not take part.
