SLICING 16 seconds from his own course record, Richard Prebble (Pinarello RT) won the sixth round of the RTTC-Rudy Project Time Trial Series at Bruton in Somerset on Saturday.
Prebble, winner of the last round in Staffordshire, secured his second win of the series when he covered the 19-mile course in 42-14, winning by exactly one minute from Paul O?Mahoney (Pro Bike Kit).
While O?Mahoney still leads the competition with 294 points from his five rides so far, Prebble is in the driving seat with 236 points from just four rides. With two rounds left for Prebble to improve on his tally, just one more victory should be enough to secure the competitions he last won in 1998.
Julia Shaw (GS Strada) won the women?s event with 49-22 to extend her lead in the series, while leading espoir was once again Nathan Simmonds (Kings Lynn CC), whose time of 52-02 was good enough for 13th spot and leaves him third overall behind O?Mahoney and Prebble.
