On Sunday Senter competed in the BRCC summer road race over 54 miles with 80 riders at Great Barford in Bedfordshire on a damp and drizzly morning.
He said: “Two riders made a breakaway and I knew that I had to join them and we pushed on as a three.
“By the last lap the breakaway consisted of only myself and one other. I got to the last climb and waited to make my move. I sprinted for the line to win by a clear two metres.
“The win felt great, the first of many hopefully.”
