Report: Wessex CX League Rd 7

Sunday 30th October | by Graham Robins 

Continuing his rich vein of form Adrian Lansley (PedalOn) led the latest round from start to finish to win by 7secs from Steven James (Hope Factory Racing) who had battled back to Lansley despite bending a rear mech hanger and having to ride for just over a lap locked in one gear.


The latest round saw the riders taking on the open grass land and surrounding wooded section at the Sparsholt Agricultural College close to Winchester. The twisty course switched back and forth making full use of the ground available to the organiser. Without and significant rain in the week the course was dry and did not cut up making for a fast race.

The first lap saw the regular league front runners taking up their usual spots with Sam Allen (PedalOn),Michael Cotty (Col Collective), Alex Forrester ( and Tom Budden (Sotonia CC) filling the places. James did manage to pass Lansley early on but his lead was quickly scuppered when he tangled with the course making tape and managed to bend his rear hanger, and this allowed Allen and Cotty to get past. But with a quick pit stop for a spare bike and James was soon pulling back the places.

Laps three and four did not see any changes in the front order and at the start of the fifth lap Lansley led James by 12secs with Cotty and Allen at 35secs, Forrester was nearly a minute down followed by three riders Tom Sewell (Cotswold Veldrijden), Jamie Norfolk (PedalOn) and Tom Budden who were locked together at 1min 38secs.

The last lap saw James slowly getting closer to Lansley but he had it all under control as they went into and out of the wooded section and finished 7secs clear, Cotty had eased away from Allen for the last spot on the podium. Forrester was fourth and Norfolk won the battle in mid race from Budden and Sewell.  … continued after advert


Women’s Race

In the women’s race Tamina Oliver (PM) enjoyed a fairly comfortable race, with all the changes coming behind here. On the early laps Helen Pattinson (Solent Pirates), Ruby Miller (Hargroves Cycles) along with junior rider Kara Perryman were within touching distance of each other. Along with front runners was Susan Parker (North Hants RC) who was staying in contact and she was to be rewarded towards the end of the race.

Oliver held a lead of 20secs lead from Pattinson at the bell with Parker third just four seconds back and closely followed by Perryman at 34secs and Miller at 43secs. With Oliver safely home Pattinson was passed by Parker who just kept peddling and was rewarded passing right on the line.

The vet 50+ race held at the same time as the women saw the battle between GS Vecchi team mates Kevin Holloway, Tim Costello along with Keith Sheridan (Cotswold Veldrijden) pull clear of the chasing group including Mitch Purvis (Rides On Air) and Gary Barlow (Reading CC). At the bell Holloway and Costello were just 3secs ahead of Sheridan and this remained the order with Costello dropping 12secs on Holloway with Sheridan loosing 20secs.

Dan Guest (Cotswold Veldrijden) won the vet40+ and combined junior race after taking the lead on the second lap from juniors Edward Gronbech (Oxford City RC) and eventual runner up Callum Macleod (PPV). The race behind Guest was all between juniors as Charlie Cooper (Hargroves Cycles), Archie Scott (Cotswold Veldrijden) and Will Cooper (Montezumas Hargroves Racing) were pushing each other hard. The next vet rider up Graham Rogerson (Cotswold Veldrijden) and he had Will McDonald (Take3 Tri) right on his wheel.
