Felix English, Abby Mae Parkinson and Jim Brown were the winners at the Beverley Town Centre races in front of yet another huge crowd in the East Yorkshire town



Felix English of JLT Condor just gets the better of the ‘Peter Sagan’ of British racing, Jon Mould, second again for the One Pro Cycling rider

Felix English (JLT Condor) explains how the race unfolded after saying he was super happy to win. Asked how the break got away so early, Felix replied “Tom (Moses, JLT Condor) went away with Mike Northey (Madison Genesis) right at the beginning, and we were fairly happy with that as we’d agreed that Tom was going to be aggressive in the race”.

“Steve (Lampier, Raleigh GAC) went next I think and I hesitated a little bit but I then saw Mouldy (Jon, One Pro Cycling), go after him and you can never let him get away because he has been so consistent (four podiums) though the whole series, the whole year really.”

“So I went after it and was quite surprised when I looked back that we had a gap because I didn’t expect other teams to let two of us (from JLT Condor) get away. We all worked well together, no-one missed any turns and I was fortunate to have Tom (Moses) there at the finish because he led out for me and I just had enough to win it.”

Asked what it’s like sprinting on cobbles, rough cobbles as they are in Beverley, Felix replied “Once you’re up to speed its fine but after racing here two years ago, I was cautious because you can’t really accelerate on it so I made sure I went quite early, got up to full speed and then pretty much got stuck in on the 11 and went as hard as I could and sat down whilst on the cobbles”.

After his injuries this year, Felix explained he’s lacking a bit of consistency but added “I have won so I could not really be much happier, especially after going pretty poorly on Wednesday in Sheffield. The flowing nature of this circuit is always going to suit me”.

“I have gone well in Sheffield before though so that was disappointing but I think it’s because I did the Tour Series, didn’t have a break, went to a training camp in Spain and have come straight here. So I haven’t really had a break so there’s a little tiredness but I hope to take it easy for the next week and come back stronger”.



Ed Clancy, JLT Condor, wins the bunch kick for 6th.

One of the things that happened during the race was using motorbikes to form a ‘barrage’ between the peloton being lapped and the break as they lapped the peloton. Asked how that worked for them in the break, Felix replied “we didn’t really know what was happening but it did go quite smooth going through”.

“I think we all had respect for each other and no one was going to attack (from the break) passing the peloton and once we got past the bunch, we all looked round to make sure everyone was still there.”

“When they came back at us in the bunch sprint (the peloton sprinted with five to go) we didn’t know what was going on. We didn’t even know they were there as there were no motorbikes and suddenly saw some Madison riders come flying past. We let them go and they didn’t disrupt us at all.”

“Tom went with a lap to go and Mouldy was straight on him and I accelerated a little bit as I didn’t want Mike to sit on me so I sat up and he had to go round me. I jumped round and got on Mouldy’s wheel with 400 to go and went quite early on the paved bit before the cobbles just to make sure I got up to full speed”.
