Report: Hargroves Wins at Moreton Evening Series

1-3 for Hargroves Cycles — Andy Hargroves, racing Moreton for the first time, wins the race in a two up sprint against Gregg Shrosbree

Eamonn Deane writes … Gregg Shrosbree (MERIDA) was disappointed to finish second in round 10 of the Moreton Evening series in Dorset. The 19 year old had scored his first win on the road last weekend at the Brentor Road Race in Devon and was hungry for more.

Shrosbree, along with Andy Hargroves (Hargroves Cycles) had attacked the bunch and had a good gap as they approached the bell lap. Unfortunately they were too quick for the timekeeper, who failed to sound the bell in time for them to hear. Hargroves team mates, Eastwood and Bowers policed the bunch and the gap grew.

Sensing that something was wrong, the duo agreed to roll across the line together. However the chequered flag came into sight and Hargroves called off the truce, easily winning the sprint, Shrosbree though, did appear not to contest the finish. He will not lose sleep over it though, “It’s only training” he said. “I am off to the Alps then onto Belgium for some races in August” Andy Hargroves was racing Moreton for the first time; the Hampshire based team are dominating the series with wins already for Eastwood & Luke Gray. Eastwood picked up the scraps in the sprint for third place and looks good to repeat his overall win of last year.
