Result: Imperial Winter Series 7
Saturday, 28th January 2017

A freshening wind promised a slightly different day of racing with much milder conditions than the previous 2 weeks.

Lucky thirteen lined up for the women’s 2/3 race, the last of the current year and things got off to a frenetic start with Katherine Kimber (Velo Schils Interbike) and Catherine Gaskell (Brixton CC) breaking away only to be reeled in by Peloton Physio series sponsor Nicole Oh of Les Filles RT.

A few laps later the lure of food from Look Mum No Hands! proved an irresistible draw for Oh when she took the prime! Gaskell led over the line for many of the remaining laps but in the sprint Oh was beaten by a tiny margin by Helen Ralston (Sigma Sport) winning her first race with Hannah Nicklin (VC Londres) in third. Peloton Physio will no doubt enjoy providing ex-team mate Ralston with her winner’s prize!

Dan Adams (London Dynamo) kicked off the 4th cats but his lead was short lived and with the stronger wind no one seemed willing or able to take the initiative and go for it; Anthony Allsopp (Woking CC) tried but at the end a fast sprint culminated in a win for Rowley Clifford (Brixton CC) with Jacek Nowosielski and Simon Pearce (Berkamsted CC) second and third. More cycling glasses from Ryder Eyewear have been handed out the riders who will be moving up a race category, well done guys.

There was no lack of initiative in the E123 race with first lap surge by Haydn James (Spokes BPS Racing) and Robert Ormond (Morvelo Basso RT). 15km later a promising break formed with James again, James McCarthy (Twickenham CC), series leader Tom Hargreaves (Nuun Sigma Sport) and Calum Croft (Latchem Sunwise RT).

Regents Park Rouleurs and Mono CC actively chased and it soon came back together. Hargreaves seemed determined to make up for a disappointing finish (by his standards) the week before and attacked again, on his own this time. He dangled out there for a number of laps but the bunch was having none of it despite the lead increasing to over 20 seconds and he clearly thought better of it and saved himself for later.

The same couldn’t be said for Ieuan Woods (Catford CC) who broke away initially with Damien Clayton (Mono CC) then persevered on his own holding 8 to 10 seconds until the last lap and with 400m to go he was caught much to his obvious disappointment. Tom Hargreaves had saved enough for the finish and won the bunch sprint from Daniel Cooper (Regents Park Rouleurs) and improving Tyler Lemmon (TBW Bottechia Wigmore RT).
