Result: Colne GP

Graham Briggs has won again, the Colne GP for the second time in his career whilst the Elite Series was won by Seb Mora of Raleigh GAC.


In a race that was fast, so fast that Briggs said on the podium how brakes were optional on the corners, breaks came and went but despite a late attack from Alex Paton of Pedal Heaven, it was a bunch kick and with Raleigh GAC leading it out for Seb Mora, Briggs in third wheel was well placed and so it proved, winning from Tom Moses with Matt Cronshaw of Madison Genesis in third.

Seb Mora, of Raleigh GAC in 4th, did enough to clinch the series from Harry Tanfield of Pedal Heaven who finished one place behind him.

In the closing laps, the Raleigh GAC team assembled at the front to bring back Alex Paton and look after Seb Mora for the finish. They did lose a rider Albert Torres with a puncture.
