SERRL 3/4/W/J 03/04/2005

Four club members (Luke, Ian, Dominic and Matt) rode this event on which took place over 9 laps of the Leigh circuit in superb sunny conditions. The super keen Ian O’Hara went away after 3 laps shortly being joined by Richard Friend (Gemini) Reg Smith (Chevin Cycles) and Nigel Brazier(VC Elan). Suffering from the exertions of the previous days Surrey League event Ian could not hold onto the lead group and drifted off the back of the break. Meanwhile Matt had clipped of the front of the bunch with two other riders whilst effectively marking moves for Ian. This group of three was soon reduced to two and Matt and Cesar (VC Deal) worked well together to put time into the bunch but did not managed to gain much on the leading trio. After picking up Ian with two laps to go Matt and Ian fought out the sprint for fourth with Cesar who despite being out numbered grabbed the 4th spot from Matt 5th then Ian 6th. In the meantime Luke had got away from the chasing bunch with a small group eventually coming in 13th. Dominic also rode well and finished in the bunch.
