The 5th and final race of the Northants Cycle Racing Association Late Spring Handicap series was run over 3 laps of the 10mile Old Circuit on Saturday May 19th.
Once again, well organised groups of long markers and middle markers kept the scratch riders at bay. A bunch finish after 1.10.15 was the inevitable outcome.
The winner was David Robinson of Kettering CC, followed by Mike Salter of Rockingham Forest, Steve Coulam of Welland Valley, Joel Lewis and Blair Adams of Kettering CC, Rob Swannack of 45 Road Club, Guy Emberson and Ian Dick of Rockingham Forest Wheelers, Phil Garlick of 45 Road Club, with Vic Barnett of Welland Valley making up the top ten.
The keenly contested, series long team competition was won by Kettering CC with 45 Road Club in second place.
The individual winner over the series was Joel Lewis, followed by Kev Hardwick of 45 Road Club with Mike Salter and Blair Adams sharing third place.
Just a short break for the riders before the Summer series starts, on the Middleton circuit on June 7th.
