Perfs Pedal 2017, Start List & Preview

Rory Townsend will start as favourite to win Perfs for the second year running as new team Bike Channel -Canyon look to lay down an early season marker. Townsend would be the first back to back winner since Tim Harris (Willeboro-Van –Peer-Kyso) in 1983/84, only team orders possibly preventing him from doing the double! Perfs winner in 2012, Chris Opie will add to Bike Channel Canyons fire-power, on the road tactics most likely deciding who takes the win. Supported by Mitch Webber,Alexander Richardson, James Lowesly Williams and Rob Partridge,the team that rose from the ashes of Pedal Heaven will expect and be expected to take charge of the 46 mile season opener in Hampshire.Looking to exploit any weekness or hesitation from the UCI Continental team will be, Jacob Vaughan (VC Londres) - Current National Junior Road Race Champion,Chris McNamara, Tom Hargreaves, Henry Latimer & Barnabas Purbrook (Nuun Sigma Sport), Lee Frost (VC Equipe-Flix) and Elliot Porter (Neon Velo RT).Benjamin Marks and Mike Mottram will lead a strong Morvelo Basso Team. Primera TeamJobs youngsters Matt Downie and Ed Hatfield could be in the mix along with Tristan Grigalis(PMR@Toachim House), Matthew Clarke (Canyon UK) and Calum Croft (Latchem Sunwise RT).
The race distance is modest but the early February date and the weather that can go with it always make it a challenging curtain raiser. Expect the deciding selection to be made on Portsdown hill, the tough climb ramps up through Boarhunt village, taking the race into the wind coming off the Solent water as it heads east to the summit and the 19th Century, Fort Southwick.
