Cotswold Vedrijden Summer series round 2 11/08/2013 – Cotswold Airport

This week the sun shone at Cotswold Airport at Kemble and the fast dry conditions bought a few more riders out. Nine youngsters took to the line for the 1st race, 15 mins of a shortened circuit using the grass and woods, the winner from start to finish was Luke Simmonds from Stratford CC who was followed by his sister Cerys in 2nd. A special mention to Katy Goodson who raced on her balance bike!

Next up were the youths, Luke Simmonds made a blistering start but was soon caught by his team mate Keir Lewis and Xavier ST of Sullivan Touge, these two broke clear of Simmonds and battled hard with each other over the 4 laps with Lewis taking the win on the line.

40 riders lined up for S/J/W/V event with last weeks top two ready to do battle again. From the start a group of four broke clear and sped through the course on the very fast dry circuit with little time to take in the sights of the Brittannia! Peter Banham of Freds RT led for the first few laps with Scott Chalmers of Dream CC, Dan Lewis of RAF CA and Benoit Davies of Cheltenham CC close on his heels.

The fast pace saw Davies gapped and the other three continued on before Banham took a tumble and dropped to third, leaving Lewis and Chalmers to fight it out. Lewis attempted to drop Chalmers but overcooked a bend and also took a tumble, he remounted and they were soon back together, Chalmers led into the final corner and sprinted out of it to take the win.

Robin Wilmott of Cotswold Veldrijden tried in vain to catch the four ahead of him but just couldn’t close the gap and had to settle for 5th place and 1st Vet. Chris Rothwell of SCRA worked his way through the field to finish in 6th place and 1st Junior. Beth George of Cotswold Veldrijden was 1st Woman.
