Local Riders,Local Races

Highlighting how racing in the south has come on it was back to back racing this week for 3 consecutive days., writes Jay Eastwood (Primera/Specialized)Starting on Tuesday at Bournemouth Cycle Centre, Mountbatten Crit in Portsmouth and the Moreton Kermess all within an hour of Bournemouth.


Tuesday's track event was used to get my legs spinning after a few days off through illness. Will Stephenson and myself decided to ride it as training having spent 4 hours the previous day pushing relatively hard around the New Forest although there was a grey tactic for me to lead him out if a win opportunity presented itself. Some fun racing was had and a couple of results too including a win for Will in the final Scratch Race.
Wednesday was the E/1/2 at Portsmouth for which Primera Specialized were there in force. We covered every move featuring in every break until Ian Legg finally got away and lapped the field with Andy Hargroves (Hargroves Cycles). Still time for another break I jumped and was soon joined by Will and two others but due to some dragging heals we didn't quite gain the lap before the bell. I could see Toby Neave drilling the front to lead Ian out for the win however Hargroves had an ally in Justin Hoy (Felt Colbourns) both strong sprinters delivering him first to the line with Ian a close and well ridden second. I took the break spring for 3rd and Will came in for 6th. All 4 Primera Specialized riders are in the top 6 for the series which still has a few weeks left to run.
Thursday was Moreton and after a long day Moutainbiking at work the legs were starting to feel a little heavy. However, a large Scratch group made things easier and with about 3 laps to go we had caught the others and formed a large peloton. A perfectly timed lead out from Will (paying me back for Tuesday) delivered me to the line first with Steve Dring and Luke Grey completing the notional podium.
Ludgershall and Portsmouth next week leading up to the Southern Crit champs being held at Castle Coombe on 5 August where we again hope for another strong team performance.
