SERRL 3/4 – Kenardington 3rd June

6 members of the club pre-entered this event. On the day 5 of these appeared at the hall to be greeted to bright, warm conditions and only a light breeze. Ed Rieu, Dave Twin, Mark Newton, Jamie Walker and Robert Robbins were joined on the line by 68 other riders. 8 laps on the undulating circuit then followed. A number of riders attempted to break off the front during the race but to little effect. Dave attacked on the main hill with 2 laps to go taking another rider with him and joining another rider already up the road. The three worked together only for about a quarter of a lap before getting brought back. On the final lap Jamie and Mark attacked on the same climb with a couple of other riders. They gained quite a gap and things were looking good. Unfortunately they were reeled in by the fast finishing bunch on the last corner. The result was a massive bunch sprint. Jamie was the first of the Sydenham riders to cross the line. Dave just pipped Robert and they were shortly followed by Mark after he had been boxed in on the inside. Ed had been dropped with a couple of laps to go and rode in a small group to the finish. The final positions are awaited on the SERRL website.
