Live! Eddie Soens Memorial


Winner, the first 3rd cat ever to win the Eddie Soens, Bertie Newey


Jack Pullar, after an attack on the back straight is fighting for his life as he’s caught in the sprint for the win in the 2015 Eddie Soens


But the win went to Newey (right) who just got the better of former winner Ian Wilkinson (Pedal Heaven. Pullar (out of shot) was third.


Early on in the race and Bertie is getting itchy to get going out of the group he was in.


An hour or so into the race and the final two groups come together 


And then the attacking began with Pedal Heaven (James Gullen pictured),  giving it some off the front.


Simon Wilson having a big go off the front.


Ian Wilkinson ( Pedal Heaven) having a look to make sure nothing escapes off the front.


Jake Womersley of Pedal Heaven in a three up break in the final quarter of the race.


Another move, this time with Harry Hardcastle and Harry Tanfield (Pedal Heaven)


But it was this move of a dozen or so riders that gapped the peloton and soon raced away to contest the race for the win


They were chased down by this small group though led by James Gullen and they made contact on the final lap.


The podium for the 2o16 Eddie Soens, Jack Pullar (Pedal Heaven), Bertie Newey and Ian Wilkinson (Pedal Heaven).

Video Interview of the winner Bertie Newey


Big front group for the Eddie Soens including the biggest ever Women’s entry with some star names from the world of Women’s racing


The scratch group meanwhile was a little light on numbers but they still got to the front of the race by halfway and then started to attack ….
