Primera-Specialized Going Strong!

Jason Eastwood of Primera/Specialized writes…….A windy but pleasingly dry night at Mountbatten, Portsmouth for another round of the series. Ian Legg, Toby Neave and myself were there for the E/1/2 race which with a full field looked as though it was going to be tough.

Team plan - attack one after the other and when the break established to make sure we were all in it. After 15 minutes we were away with 12 or so others including series leader Justin Hoy (Felt). One after the other we attacked with Ian showing amazing form but with 5 laps to go it was Toby turn it was to go. Most of the field had been destroyed and retired with only about 10 riders left in the race. Toby took a VC St Raphael rider with him and they held on for a photo finish for the win. The bunch was only a few seconds behind, a Willier rider went with 2 to go but was brought back and then with 400 to go Ian opened it up, Justin Hoy put down the power and went past Ian and I managed to come around Justin for a photo finish for 3rd with Ian taking 5th
Once again the team rode well with a dominant performance from start to finish.

Toby finished 2nd at Dunsfold yesterday and is close to winning the Surrey league series. Will Stephenson has just returned from a 4 day race in Belgium (details to follow) and I'm riding the National Masters Road championship this weekend in Surrey.
