Report & Results – PedalPushers Circuit Races No 1
(thanks to Simon Cocker)

Witham Wheelers promoted the first round of the PedalPushers circuit race league at RAF Barkston Heath near Grantham (Lincolnshire). With a full days programme of Youth and separate races for Ladies, 4th category and 2/3/4 categories there was no rest for race officials as they kept the races on schedule with 225 riders taking to the start line during the day.


Conditions were cool but mostly dry on the 1km circuit which is well surfaced with fast flowing corners but the exposed location always makes for hard racing with only the strongest riders able to make a break stick.

Racing was really competitive in all the categories but most of the races seemed to follow a similar pattern with riders making small breaks but never able to break the elastic, before being reined in by a dwindling bunch in time for the final sprint.

Only the final 2/3/4 race finally broke the mould when a small group of 4 riders Julian Grommett(Squadra RT ), Ryan Perry (Langdale Lightweights )Harry Browning (PedalPushers) and James Bevan (VC Meudon) finally pulled out a 15 second gap with 3 laps to go, then Jim Coleman (PedalPushers ), Blake Cowley (Clay Cross RT) and Peter Cocker (PedalPushers) all individually jumped across the gap to contest the final sprint which was won by Julian Grommett by a tyre from Ryan Perry.


The next event is promoted by Spalding CC again at Barkston Heath on Saturday 26th April.
