Ian Legg Takes Victory in a Windy Round 3
Yesterday, after a wet and blustery day, the wind and rain subsided enough for Ian Legg (Primera Specialized) to take victory in the third round of the UK-Biking Moreton Road Race Series, just ahead of teammate Jay Eastwood.
Finishing in a group of 4 riders, it was a closely contested sprint between the 2 teammates, who gained the first 2 positions, ahead of Luke Gray (Baboco Cycling Team) and Mark Chadbourne (Ride Bike).
Steve Dring (Team Echelon-Rotor) was next over the line having been distanced from the winning group and forced to work determinedly by himself in the undesirable conditions. The remaining riders formed small groups and worked together well to try and cut the deficit, despite the continued high winds that made it particularly difficult for all.
The UK-Biking Primera Duo, of Garrett Hill and Keith Randle, worked together for much of the race & came home in 6th and 7th place respectively, holding off a group of three riders; Matthew Mildon , Sean Kenneally and Martin Aldridge for the remaining positions.
