Photo Album: Peter Young Memorial Road Race


Jake Martin was a deserved winner of the Peter Young Memorial Road Race in Chobham (Surrey) on a cold and wet day.

Martin, was part of a three rider break that spent most of the race off the front and in the uphill sprint, Martin was able to see off the challenge of Elliott Porter and former winner, Alex Higham.


The race began with small groups forming off the front and the first joined within a lap of going clear before a five man chase group including Wouter Sybrandy (IG Sigma Sport) and Olympic Champion Ed Clancy (Rapha Condor JTL) also bridged the gap. This left a large group of riders of 30 or so in front and it was too big for Jake Martin who attacked twice solo, the second dig seeing three others join him.

As well as Porter and Higham, John Heaton-Armstrong was also part of the move but punctured leaving just the three in the lead. There was at this stage still almost half the race to go and whilst the three minute gap never grew any bigger, and the chase from the remnants of the break was getting quicker and more determined, the trio out front were never in any danger of being caught.

Behind, Wouter Sybrandy (IG Sigma Sport) rode most of the seven laps of the finishing circuit on his own to finish fourth with the rest of the race split all over the place on a day when riders were finishing with no feeling in their hands and unable to talk… it was that cold!
