Moreton 12, Amor Wins, Eastwood Wins Again!


Shaun Amor (UK-BIKING) won the final round of the Moreton village series as Jay Eastwood (Primera-sports .com) won the overall for the fourth consecutive year Eastwood, though, has not had it all his own way this time round, winning just three races, missing two and suffering mechanical problems. Stuart Bowers (Hargroves Cycles) & Calum Croft (Mud, Sweat ‘Gears) both got the better of the Primera man in the sprint, proving he is beatable. Barnaby Cox (Gillingham & Dist Wh), Steve & Paul Dring (Echelon-Rotor) & James Horton (Cannondale) also denied Eastwood wins. He remains the man to beat however. This year’s series victory coming by virtue of his four second places as much as his three victories, which have taken his total wins in the series so far to 21. The last evening of the series saw the handicapper in a benevolent mood and the gap to the “greens” was never going to be closed. At the bell there advantage was still over a minute and we were guaranteed another new winner. It was, perhaps, fitting that a UK-BIKING rider won the last race and Amor shouted his delight as he crossed the line in a keenly contested sprint.

This TLI series has been a great success and has shown there is a demand for affordable, sign-on the line, no-nonsense racing in Dorset. The full fields from week one enabled the organisers, Steve Dring & Richard Lang to donate £700 to the St Johns Ambulance who provide first aid cover for the races. A new village hall will be built in time for next year’s series, although I suspect the parish councillors were thinking more of the monthly jumble sale than the bike racing.
