The main event of the day saw veteran Mike Coyle of Brighton Mitre destroy the opposition by attacking solo with 40 mins + 5 laps to go, eventually lapping the field for an emphatic win. Paul Flynn (Pivot Boom Pods) and Ryan Visser (Redhill CC) completed the podium.

The Vet’s race also saw a lapped bunch after a three break man proved their strength and commitment with wins for Martin Smith (AW Cycles) & Keir Apperley (CC Hackney) in the respective categories and a fine second place for breakaway companion Barny Willard of In Gear.

The day also saw a win for Jen George of Dulwich Paragon in the womens race, outsprinting Bella Leach of London Phoenix & teammate Charlotte Roberge. There were also wins from bunch finishes for Carl Farrell in the 3rds and Rapha Condor CC’s Kevin Armstrong in the race for 4th category riders.

Next week sees more racing at Preston Park with the Apres September Sessions on sunday, Sept 1st.
