Race report – Stormforce 2019

Awesome Alsop leads the purple and gold home!

There was  a fantastic turnout for the opening race of the Cornish Grand Prix season, with a huge number of PBs recorded.

Stormforce 10, a fast undulating route that heads out of Camborne, through Barripper and Carnhell Green towards Leedstown before turning back on the Praze Road. The route then returns back to Carnhell Green and Barripper and back into Camborne, drew in another great turnout – especially being the first GP race of the 2019 season.

A very fast finish to keep the excitement going to the final stages of the race saw Dan Alsop finish fifth overall in a top field in 55:49.

This added to three others breaking the 60 minute barrier with Simon Williams at 57:55, James Cutlan at 58:19 and David Tregonning, a debut for the Stormforce 10 race sneaking in at 59:56.

Adding Jon Wisner and Jason Parks the Men’s team came in third.

There were a number of age category prizes for St Austell RC. Dan Alsop, second in the Vet 35-39, Simon Williams, first in the 45-49 and Malcolm Roberts, first in the 65-69 for the men with Alexandra Russell-Small picking up first spot in her Vet 35-39 age category in the female.

Next up in the Cornwall Glass and Glazing Grand Prix Series, Newquay 10k on Sunday 3rd February.

Several club members also took part in the Gloucester Half Marathon, well done to all!
