Report: Ludgershall Winter Series Rnd 5


The Ludgershall winter series again fell victim to the winter weather with some of the races cancelled.

Eamonn Deane writes … Snow & sleet caused race Commisaire Tim Knight to call a halt after the second of two 4th category races. It was disappointing but it was the only option as the 1km tank testing track in Wiltshire rapidly turned into an ice rink.

Ruan Vester won a bunch sprint in race 1 but the weather was already deteriorating. Mountain Biker Kim Little made his move with 3 laps to go in race 2. The gap was never large but the will to close it was not there, with the chasers battling the elements as much as Little!

The snow was heavy and the decision to cancel was met with no argument as most hurried back to the warmth of their cars. Rounds 2 and 3 were also cancelled because of snow and ice, one of the risks of early season racing. Organiser Darren Clarke is due some luck with the weather, hopefully for round 6 next Saturday.
