Result: Lancaster Grand Prix

Hard work and patience paid off for Ian Bibby of Madison Genesis as he won the inaugural Lancaster Grand Prix.  Bibby was quick to pay tribute to his Madison Genesis team-mates after Round 3 of the men’s National Road Series.

They had worked hard with Canyon dhb p/b Bloor Homes to reel in a breakaway trio of John Archibald (Ribble Pro Cycling), Edmund Bradbury (MEMIL Pro Cycling) and Cam Jeffers (Saint Piran).

The three built up a lead close to three minutes and appeared in a strong position. But Jeffers was first to drop back and then the chasing pack cranked up the pressure on the leading two on the final lap of a circuit which has drawn comparisons with the Ardennes classics.

“The lads did brilliantly to bring them back perfectly,” Bibby said. “All along I was thinking I’d be reasonably quick at the finish – I was hoping if I could hang on in the climbs I should have a good chance to finish off which is what I did.”

Bibby, who is based in the north-west, used some local knowledge to take the win in the spectacular setting of Lancaster’s Williamson Park. He said: “There’s a little chicane with about 200 metres to go. I was absolutely flat out but I just knew if I could get into there it would be pretty tough for people to come past, so my finish line was that chicane.”
