Result: British Team Cup Coalville

Jon Miles writes … Sammie Stuart of Team Brother UK/LDN won a fast British Team Cup using her famous “diesel” legs to out drag the rest of the field on a sunny day in Coalville.

With a near full field, this traditional early season event organised by Nick Horner Maddox and Coalville Wheelers for over 10 years now was enlivened halfway through the 7 lap race when Gemma Sargent (Saint Piran WRT) clipped off the front and stayed active for a full lap before the bunch brought her back.

No one else could get away so it was the race sped towards a sprint. Sammie explained “This is my first British Team Cup win. I am surprised, we went well as a team today. Long distance sprint which is my style of racing, actually as we came to the final climb…which is my strength, my Diesel engine took over. There were 3 in front slightly and I bridged across to them and that was that”

It was great to see the World Championship jersey in the race as Zoe Backstedt, riding as a guest of Ellmore Digital, rode the race.

Injured in a crash halfway through, Laura Watson has a possible broken elbow and damage to her face.
