Bialoblocki Wins Wilton Grand Prix!


Marcin Bialoblocki(Velosure-Giordana) deservedly won the Cycle Wiltshire Grand Prix in a super-fast race that covered 101 miles in Wiltshire sunshine in a little over 3hrs 48m.
Bialoblocki demonstrated his versatility, always looking to get in a break, always driving that break and able to sprint if asked to do so. Bialoblocki leads the British Cycling Elite series ranking after this superb show of strength , determination and desire.The Somerset-based rider had been part of a loose, 29 man break that had gone early on as the race covered four seventeen mile loops in the country, west of Wilton. Run off at a fast pace in near perfect weather, it was the climb of Fovant Down that shaped the race, with the leading group establishing an advantage that grew to two minutes. Tom Moses (Rapha Condor), Peter Hawkins (Madison Genesis), Mathieu Boulo (Team Raleigh), Josh Hunt (NFTO Pro Cycling) and Bialoblocki escaped and had built a lead of over 40 seconds as the race hit the 5.5 mile finishing circuit around the Wiltshire town. Hawkins crashed out after a touch of wheels and his Madison Genesis team set about bringing the gang of four back. They were still clear at the bell but the catch was made soon after, Bialoblocki though, simply switched to plan B, snatching a thrilling victory from a lunging Dean Downing (NFTO Pro Cycling) . The town & residents of Wilton embraced the race and enjoyed the day out, camped at the side of the road with thermos flasks, cheering loudly , each of the race's ten passages through the town. Out in the sticks too, they got into the spirit, The queens Head pub at Broadchalke in the Ebble valley was selling homemade cakes & lemonade (proceeds to the air ambulance), giving away whistles & union flags and enjoying the spectacle as the race convoy flew by.
