Result: Elite Circuit Series Barnsley

The unbeatable Matt Bostock made it five race wins out of five as he and Rebecca Durrell were the big winners on the night along with Jo Tindley who wrapped up the Women’s overall title in the National Circuit Series. Bostock did likewise despite there still being one round to go.

Canyon dhb p/b Bloor Homes rider Bostock has proved unbeatable in the Circuit Series and once again delivered the goods, coming from third place in the final corner to take a fifth win that makes his lead atop the standings unattainable. Tindley, meanwhile, had to settle for second place behind former Barnsley winner Rebecca Durrell on a dramatic night of racing in South Yorkshire.

But a spot on the podium proved enough for Tindley to take the overall series title, narrowly edging out Campinense–Velo Performance teammate Elizabeth Bennett to the crown.

Men’s podium for the racing on Friday night – Connor Swift, Matt Bostock and Ali Slater

Five-star Bostock maintains perfection
With half-an-eye on Sunday’s British Circuit Championships, there were thoughts as to whether Bostock would go full throttle on the roads of Barnsley and whilst he wasn’t supposed to, he proved exactly why he has impressed so heavily this year, heading to Rochester full of confidence after a sprint finish against the formidable Connor Swift to add to his repertoire of impressive finales.

A big group formed off the front early on ….

But attacking from the likes of Ryan Christensen  and Connor Swift saw that group dwindle in numbers to four

In tough conditions due to earlier rain, the riders were initially feeling out the conditions with the peloton stretched out on a technical circuit. But once a group had formed, the was breakaway not to be caught, with Bostock, Rob Scott, national road champion Connor Swift (Team Arkea-Samsic), Ali Slater (Vitus Pro Cycling p/b Brother UK) and Ryan Christensen (Canyon dhb p/b Bloor Homes) leading the way.

A slip-up and get down saw Christensen lose ground but the remaining quartet were not letting their advantage fall away heading into the last eight laps. Into the final lap they went, still together but as Scott’s bid for victory disappeared, a sprint to the line was left between Slater, Swift and Bostock. It was Swift who turned the corner with free road ahead of him but as a three-up sprint ensued, Bostock’s speed once again came to the fore as he secured a fifth win of the series with one round to go in Sheffield, next week.

“It’s massive, I didn’t expect it tonight – I was hoping for a bit of an easier ride, and for there to be pressure on other shoulders,” he said. “I wasn’t sure what to do, we came here to win and I knew I had Ollie (Wood) in the chasing group, I was in two minds but we rode quite nicely together and we got the sprint. The pressure is on for Sunday, that’s the big one, I’ll have to get some good sleep.”

Ali Slater crossed to Christensen and Swift with Bostock and the foursome stayed away to the end

Rebecca Durrell sprints to her second win in a week 

Earlier in the night, it took mere moments for the women’s field to be strewn across the circuit with the series leaders battling it out for position early on. Among them was overall leader Bennett until she snapped a chain before properly getting going in the race, denting her chances of continuing her strong form. Teammate Tindley was not to be held back, but being outnumbered by Brother UK – Tifosi p/b OnForm duo Durrell and Gabriella Shaw, made her task far from easy.

Each of the trio took their turn to make an break for it, with Tindley looking to make attack the best form of defence. Fears of being caught from the peloton were snuffed out as they increased their lead to beyond 30 seconds, the winner certain to come from these three as they entered the final five laps. Durrell entered the bell lap ahead and that was how it finished despite the best efforts of a superb ride from Tindley, with Shaw wrapping up the podium.

Jo Tindly on the attack …

But a second place was enough for Tindley to reach 78 points and top spot for the series, nine points ahead of Bennett while Durrell took third spot. Having two riders lead the individual standings gave Campinense – Velo Performance a comfortable win in the team standings, their 157 points more than 60 clear of the nearest challengers. Durrell said of her race win: “It’s a confidence-booster, Jo had a great ride and it was really fun. We all got around unscathed, so job’s a good’un.”
