Matt Hill takes "Home Win" at Moreton



Matt Hill (UK-BIKING) got a well-deserved “Home Win” in the latest round at Moreton. Riding for the race series sponsors, mountain biker Hill took the win after the scratch group failed to make up their deficit. Fifty one riders set off and even at 7pm it was like dusk under the trees. The 19 strong scratch group had enough experience in its wheels to pull the race together, yet they could not manage it. Perhaps the group was too big, too many passengers? Whatever the reason they never seemed to get organised. Will Stephenson (Primera/Specialized) came down after a touch of wheels, which further hindered the chase. Will got up ok but was out of it and the group would miss his turns. The rest of the race was together and growing in confidence, sensing an upset. At the bell, the gap seemed bridgeable but if anything it drifted out as Hill took the sprint ahead of Darryl Price (Poole Wh) and cycle speedway rider Matt Mildon (mud,sweat n’gears).

  1. UK biking has always been at the forefront of the cycling in our country. Even before the exploits of Cavendish and Wiggins, the team was at the forefront of organizing events and getting people to take up cycling. You can pick up any newspaper today and find that our most respected journalists are touting Bradley Wiggins as the reason why so many people are taking up cycling in UK. What these people forget is that even before the advent of Wiggins, there was a decent cycling club in UK. I thank the UK biking association for their commitment and for organizing such events to keep people such as myself interested.
