Race report from SE Juniors road race today at Ottershaw, Surrey

Because of heavy overnight rain the course was flooded in places leading to a shortened kermesse style of race – 18 laps of a 3 course.

Almost immediately three riders went off the front, but after 5 laps, were brought back. After that attack the race settled down until with 7 laps go a group of 7 attacked and got a gap of 20 secs.

I managed to bridge across with 3 other riders to form a break of 11 riders that would stay away to the finish. One rider, Ed Bishop of VC Meudon attacked the lead group and soloed to the win, leaving the rest of us to sprint it out for second on a slight uphill finish. I got pipped by a tyre width for 4th but pretty happy with 5th.

Thanet RC Jo Smith National Champion

Report from Jo
The best Grass Track National 800m field in several years! So so pleased to defend my title for the 5th year in a row! Such a good race with some amazingly talented young women, so I’m really happy to hang on to the title for another year!

Well done to Sian for 2nd, Tilly for 3rd and Shell for 4th!

Time to recover a little before my second National Championship of the weekend at the Masters Road Race Champs in Lancashire tomorrow!

Huge thanks as always to the best coach ever in the whole world Tim Blackcatcc, all the results I get are more than half yours! #thankyou

George 3rd in Winchester Crits

George Pittock (U16) achieved his first podium place away from his home circuit with a fine third place finish at the second of four Velo Club Venta Summer Criterium races at Winchester on Sunday.

George was in a group of five that got away early and it was soon apparent that the winner would come from those five, with Elliot Cox of host club Velo Club Venta looking the most likely.

George took a long turn on the front with three laps to go and then dropped to the back of the group to conserve some energy before the final sprint.

Cox, eighth at the recent Hillingdon nationals, had the momentum coming out of the final corner and took victory from Samuel Clark, ranked 16th nationally and from the Portsmouth based i-Team Cycling Club, with George about a wheel length behind and ahead of Owen Giles of Portsmouth North End CC.

This was an excellent performance from George who has prioritised criterium races this year specifically to improve his skills and fitness.

Whites Summer Series Round.6 results
