BMCR Result: BMCR Circuit Championships (E/F/G/H & W)

The Milton Keynes Bowl was filled with talented and enthusiastic BMCR racers today for the National Criterium Championships 60+ & Women categories. Under sunny skies, over a hundred riders across E, F, G, H & W age groups clipped into their pedals, with jerseys up for grabs.

The E race started fast, but it didn’t split until around the halfway point when 18 riders formed a lead group that pushed on and soon gained a lead of around a minute. The second group of 12 was ultimately caught but rode sensibly on the back of what was now one big group. As the final laps approached lapped riders dropped back and allowed the gallopers to charge. Paul James timed his sprint perfectly from the bottom of the hill to take the Championship. Mike Twelves 2ndand Deano Sibthorpe 3rd.

The F race fragmented early with a few unable to hold the pace as temperatures rose. The race remained one large group and came down to a bunch sprint. Costa Pierides took the Championship, with Rob O’Connor 2nd and Brian Pearson 3rd.
(Special mention to Martin Fisher too, who technically finished second in the bunch sprint but had to miss 4 laps at the start to repair a puncture so was relegated down to 20th).

The G, H & Women (U55s & Over 55s), all started together in the midday sun when once again, the hard racing saw riders dropping off the back early. The lead group was made up of 7 or 8 riders with Helen-Taylor Carter (Mim) driving the pace on the front. With around 5 minutes to go 4 G category riders and Helen got away to duke out the sprint.

Champion woman U55 was Helen-Taylor Carter, 2nd Alexandra Hamilton & 3rd was Elaine Simpson.
Champion woman over 55 was Janet Birkmyre, 2nd Linda Dewhurst and 3rd Clare E Belle Simon.

Men’s G Champion was Andrew Donaldson, 2nd Tony Carter & Stephen Bunn 3rd. Men’s H Champion was Olivier McPherson, 2nd Don Parry & 3rd Bill Cotton.

Well done to all the riders for participating and making it a great day of racing.
