Race report by Matthew Farren

A Royle good hiding! An early break stayed away of 3 consisting of Alex Royle, Ian Robins and Ryan Visser. Simon Alexander followed but had left it late meaning he was in for a hard day left in no mans land between the leaders and the main bunch.

He stuck it out though lapping the bunch after about 1/2 an hour and taking a well earned 4th. Sharing the workload, the 3 away lapped the field before a very strong looking Royle took off for a solo effort pulling away again.
A right Royal good hiding delta out I’d say from this talented Scot, taking the spoils and his 1st cat in style.

Behind, the battle for second was fought out in an unusually fair way both taking turns before Robins led out and stayed away for a photo finish from Ryan who took third and also his well earned 1st cat license.

Masters C+
An aggressive move early on by Kingston Wheeler’s Andy Edwards but everyone deep into the red and split the field for those who had not warmed up. He soloed away for 30 mins before being reeled in by a chasing group of three, and was finally beaten by a final lap strike from a fresh legged Sean McAuliffe of Redhill CC.

We love an aggressive rider here at Preston Park and Catford CC Equipe/Banks youngster Matthew Webber moved up to the seniors showing true class, a wise head and a clean pair of wheels to the rest of the field, winning by a good margin on his first time out after attacking repeatedly. Well done young man, That’s how you Race!

A break which stuck! Yes you heard it! A 4th break which had four away from midway, which went down to three then stayed away finishing ahead of the pack, showing that effort and perseverence does pay and certainly as you move up the categories. Darren Heath took the honours by a good margin for Charlotteville CC.
