Simon Richardson (

soloed to win the Tour of the Reservoir, the opening race in the 2010 Premier Calendar series, in the North-East on Sunday.

Richardson attacked the bunch within the final two laps of the 87-mile (140km) race around the vast Derwent Reservoir. He fought hard to stay away, and clinched the win 54 seconds ahead of second-placed Ian Wilkinson (Endura) and Sweden’s Nicolas Gustavsson (Team Sprocket ProCycling) in third.

The Premier Calendar resumes on Saturday April 3 with the three-day Tour Doon Hame, Dumfries in Scotland.

    After an excellent preview this is a very disappointing report of the leading professional road race in the country that day.
    This reads like a summarised rehash of someone else’s report. The problem with that is that it relies on the original source being accurate which is not always the case.
