Moreton Series:Groundhog Day as Eastwood Wins Again!


It was like Groundhog Day down in Dorset as Jay Eastwood (Primera/Specialized) galloped to yet another victory in the Moreton series. Eastwood appears unbeatable in the finale, nearly always a bike length clear at the line. Few would bet against him winning the overall series for a third straight year. For the first time this year the sun shone on a Thursday evening, a stiff breeze blew but was already dying as the race got underway. The three groups ahead of the scratch were altogether by half distance and seemingly working well. As is often the case in handicaps though, too many seem to be waiting for the catch. If those further down the line showed the industry of the “same old faces” on the front then maybe they would surprise themselves. The combined “slower” groups held a gap of around a minute for 3 laps but once the chasers had caught a glimpse the game was up. Into the last lap, Eastwood & Luke Gray (Baboco CT) were first to make the junction, muscling their way to the front, followed by the rest of the contenders. All eyes were on the Primera rider but Gray was the one who opened up the sprint. Eastwood had it covered however and was quickly on the wheel and even quicker to come round on Grays left. It looked easy, it probably wasn’t, he has raced a lot this season and is a specialist at this type of racing. Next week’s race will be the Midsummer Championship event and will be 30 minutes longer. The extra distance may allow someone to attack Eastwood, breakaways are rare at Moreton but why wait for the sprint when we all know what will happen!
