An hour before the start the riders had driven in driving rain and poor visibility to the headquarters, luckily the rain stayed off for the duration of the race. Gavin the organiser did a superb job with excellent rallying around of the helpers and perfect coordination on the night. They made it as safe as possible for the riders to enjoy the course.

The riders for whom a lot were learning road racing and learning tactics along the way. It was a mixture of experience and novices on the road and a few hairy moments occurred especially when a lorry jacked knifed around the bends out of the wood.

Daniel Ladle BBM Revolution who was to soon relinquish his fourth cat status, had quite a few moves off the front, however no one would go with him to break away.
So it was left to a sprint finish with all the riders heading to the line, Jacob Brown from the organising club Clifton CC taking the win from Dan Ladle second and Jacob’s team mate Zach Smith in third place.

It was good to see the lady in the race Helen Tickner Crosstrax finishing the course.
