Result: 7th Independence Road Race

Nick Faint of Finchley RT wins the LVRC 7th Independence Road Race in appalling conditions while Steve Dring  beats Glen Longland in the TLI race   …

The race on Sunday was held in appalling weather with a much reduced field where only 24 riders was reduced to only 14 starters and 11 finishers. Our thanks go to my marshalls who stood out in driving rain and strong
winds. The peloton stayed together until the final sprint which was won easily by Nick Faint (Finchley RT) from David Hobbs(Corinthian CC) with Mark Farrar(Coventry Road Club) third.
