Matthew Webber (Hackney GT) led from start to finish in strong ride to see him claim victory and a sunny but chilly Hillingdon Cycle track. His overall winning margin was almost a minute over second placed senior rider Sylvain Garde (Addiscombe CC). In between these two was first Veteran rider Sean Williams (Wightlink/Offshore).


From the start of the long tarmac run out, a small group of five riders began to form on the front and it was these five that were to maintain position on the road. As the first lap was completed Matthew had a lead over Sylvain of 28secs, with Sean close by. The next group contained Matt Holmes and Dennis Lisbygd ( but they had started to lose ground the leaders and also carving through the pack was Darren Barclay.

With Matthew controlling his race, Dennis was 5secs back with Sean, Sylvain and Matt Holmes in a race together. Coming through the field was American rider Andrea Smith (ladies first racing) on a flying visit in the country on route to next weekend’s World Cup race in Namur in Belgium; she was soon mixing it with the senior men and even enjoyed the chance to change her bike on each lap.

With a lap to go, Matthew led Sean by 25secs with Sylvain a further 14 secs behind back and these places remained to the finish. With the race being combined Matthew won the senior race with Sylvain finishing third on the road but second senior with Dennis third. Sean took second overall and first vet almost seven minutes clear of Roy Chamberlain.

The morning started with races for under 10’s and under 12’s. Anna Wadsworth (PPV) pulled away early on and won by 1min 4secs from Alex Russell and Alex Wetherill both Team Milton Keynes in the under 10’s. Ben Tulett (Hargroves Cycles) was gridded at the back not being a Central rider and he stormed to front with a few hundred meters of the start and was never challenged all race. The race for second was not to easy as Jay Allen and Angus Hawkins (PPV) along with Thomas Timberlake were very well matched. Jay found some space and set about putting some distance over the other two. Angus on the other hand found the conditions harder work and he slipped back.
