Former Grantham triathlete Steve Young has jumped from 4th Category licence status to 2nd in the matter of months since he made the switch to road racing.

The 29-year-old won his first race in a Pedalpushers Circuit League event at Barkston Heath back in April.

Riding for WyndyMilla, Steve proved he was still in the pink with his second race victory in the Nottinghamshire round of the EGEG Road Race League at Willoughby on the Wolds last Sunday.

With four miles remaining, he broke away from the bunch with Jack Green (VC St Raphael) and Jason Gurney (www.twenty3c.co.uk) and the trio opened up a 25-second gap on the chasers.

The pace was too much for Gurney and Steve jumped Green to take the win by two bike lengths.

Steve said: “It came down to Jack and me and I had another gear above him and managed to get clear.”
