Henstridge Road Race, Downie Wins Again!

Bournemouth Cycleworks Road Race winner, Matt Downie (Eden Veranda Racing) takes another win on the Dorset/Somerset border.

Matt Downie...
"a pretty slow start then nearing the end of the first lap Michael Ford turns to me and tells me to get on his wheel, so of course I did. We managed to get a decent gap pretty quickly, after 2 laps the convoy car was behind us, which was a massive confidence boost. We worked very well together, I think probably because we were both determined to stay away. On the last lap we got told that our lead was 3 mins on the group, but easing up wasn't on either of our minds so we kept going at a pretty rapid pace. Coming into the last corner Mike was pulling off as he just pulled a great turn, so in respect I took up the front, but had my eye on him the majority of the way, as I was winding it up I noticed he started dropping back a bit so I just thought it's now or never and I opened up the sprint, and I managed to keep ahead of him till the line."
