Report – Apres Whacky Races 

ApresLogoBattle Royale here this weekend in the E/1/2/3! Lack of elites but good field of 1s and 2s took to the historic Preston Park Track here at Brighton for the Apres Wacky Races

From the off, we had some good digs just to test the legs and lungs, with a few looking like they would stick but it was a canny field of older heads who weren’t going to allow it.

London Dynamos Jeremy Brougham timed an move well, hanging out alone for a while before Tony Gibb pinged across with KTM – Road – and -Trails Michael Mottram hot on his heels – this looked like it would stick and it did. Working together they lapped the rest then had a breather.

ASL360s Pete Morris was involved in most chase attempts but the pack didn’t look like it would allow it to happen. Good aggressive racing abounded though with everyone having a go at some point, people came to race their bikes…..we like that.

Winding up for the last finale, Jeremy Brougham took the initiative and went from way too far out – or did he …lap and a quarter with these boys behind, up the back straight into the wind, 10 meters out on a lined out bunch, Go On Son, Go On!!

Everyone on their feet – he’s not going to do it, he is, he bloody is…enter CSE Racings Tony Gibb, like a shadow from the east.. and what a bike throw – he’s done that before… dead heat! Cracker.. well done all!

Cat 3rds
A fast race this week with a shared work load saw the field, stretched, thinned out and before long riders dropping off. With 15 mins to go the BC Comms are now pulling out lapped riders as not to impede a sprint finish and as organisers we agree with anything which will help make safe racing and looks a good idea.

This one came down to a sprint with Zappi’s CC Ben Rowe winning clearly by 4 lengths with On The Rivets Carl Farrell, showing local knowledge 2nd and Dulwich Paragons regular Sam Evans 3rd.

Again a packed field here for the 4ths as was the 3rds and in general good race with us having the benefit of a mobile comm to give pointers and make sure riders stick to their line.

Over exuberance though in the final lap saw a coming together which brought half a dozen riders down mid pack. The finish was never in doubt though with Brighton Mitres Simon Hughes timing his drive to perfection winning with a bike length clear. We expect good things from the young prospect. Arthur Tye from Dulwich Paragon took 2nd and Team Bottechia UKs Billy Fairman in third.
