Over 7 laps making a race distance of 50 miles (80k), a break away of five riders went within the first three miles of the race, comprising of Rob Watkinson (Doncaster Whs) James Thompson (Hope Factory ), Stuart Percival (GB Fire Service), Danny Lowthorpe, (Langsett cycles) and William Brown (Blackhawk bikes).

This group worked well together whilst the bunch let the gap grow from 35 seconds to 1 minute 15 then on to 1:50 as the bell was rung for the final lap. The break fragmented up the drag past the mast at South Cave however they had enough of a gap to come in comfortably for the first five places with Rob Watkinson taking a well deserved win from James Thompson with Stuart Percival in 3rd.

William Brown was 4th and Danny Lowthorpe 5th. A long chase from Steven Guymer who attacked out of the bunch with 2 to go secured 6th place. The rest of the bunch was split in two when a horse rider disobeyed the commissaires request to keep her horse under control with two miles to go, splitting the group in two. However, luckily no accidents occurred due to experienced riders evasive actions. I think the horse was more scared than they where!

Excellent event by the promoting club of John Fenton and his team of helpers and the weather stayed nice for an change.

Thanks to Julie Rodman.
