Report – Wessex CX League Rd3

Sunday 27th September | by Graham Robins 

Sam Allen (PedalOn) led the latest Wessex League race from start to finish despite a very spirited challenge from Paul Lloyd (Rides on Air) on a very warm afternoon at the Moredon Golf course in the centre of Swindon. The race was promoted by the Cotswold Veldrijden club and sponsored by Hargroves Cycles.


As Allen started to pull away and open up a gap Lloyd was the only rider to manage to go with him. James Cotty and Charlie Cooper (Eden Veranda RT) lead the charge along with Jamie Norfolk (PedalOn) but by the end of the first lap the lead was already 10secs. Another rider, Paul Sheers (Vicious Velo) was beginning to mix it with the chasing group and soon he had made it past.

With the initial couple of laps completed Allen was stretching his lead over Lloyd with Norfolk 38secs down and Sheers the next rider up. There was a battle behind this leading group as Cotty, Steven Davies (Hargroves Cycles), Joe Andrews (PM) and Graham Rogerson (Cotswold Veldrijden) was swapping places as the course meandered around the course.

As the race reached a conclusion Allen had an 18secs lead over Lloyd with Norfolk at 52secs, followed by Sheers, Davies and Andrews at 1min 21secs and Rogerson at 1min 36secs. The order remained the same as Allen took his first win of the new season.

In the vet 50+ race Steven Davies (Hargroves Cycles) continued his winning start to the season by making it three from three. Once again Davies started fast and built a big lead over Dave McMullen (Cotswold Veldrijden) who in turn was clear by 10secs over a group being lead by Kevin Holloway (VC-10) and including Chris Hutchings (VC Venta). Davies held the lead over McMullen throughout the race and the finish was 56secs clear, Holloway took third 1min 16secs down.

North Hants women rider Sarah Barber was a clear winner from Natasha Reddy (RP Racing) and Susan Parker (NHRC) taking the third step on the podium and her best result in Wessex League race. Helen Pattinson was contesting third with Parker but a slide on one of the courses off camber descents saw her part company with her bike.

The combined vet 40+ and junior race saw Dan Guest (Performance Cycles) quickly build up a lead over leading junior rider Tom Sewell (Cotswold Veldrijden) of 30secs and 52secs over second vet Graham Rogerson (Cotswold Veldrijden). In the junior race Ed Gronbech (Oxford City RC) had Charlie Cooper (Eden Veranda RT) for company

After four laps the order was Guest, Sewell (j) at 53secs, Gronbech (j) and Rogerson (v) at 1min 33secs, Cooper (j) at 1min 44secs, Harry Rose (Team Zappi’s j) at 1min 57scs and Keith Sheridan (Cotswold Veldrijden) at 2mins 14secs. The next two remaining laps did not see any change in the order and riders finished as the order above.

Erin Baker (Team MK) won the youth race with Euan Macleod (PPV) taking the u14 boys race win. Katie Scott (Cotswold Veldrijden won the u16 girls race and Anna Wadsworth (Beeline the u14 girls category.
