Cox & Georgi in 1-2 at South Region Junior Road Champs!

Matthew Cox & Etienne Georgi made it a 1-2 for Giant CC-Halo Films taking gold & silver at the South Region Junior road race championships. The talented pair were part of a promising move that formed early in the 52 mile race at Stockbridge Down in Hampshire.
The field already stretched by the tough parcours blew apart as Cox, Georgi, James Hywell-Davies (Gillingham & Dist Wh), Jack Hoskins, Alex Van Katwyk (Guernsey CC), Rhys Pilley (Jersey CA), Hayden Burton (Bath CC), Jack Freeman (VC Meudon), Chris Rothwell (Ride 24/7) & Ed Hatfield (PrimeraTeamjobs) turned the heat up.

Hatfield punctured through the feed zone but fought his way back on, using the convoy as best he could. If he got a tow, few would begrudge him that after a very slow wheel change.
Hayden Burton (Bath CC) attacked relentlessly and worked hard but could never get away before Cox made his move. The rolling A30, into the wind deterred any chasers, Georgi bridged across but seemed to pay for his effort, unable to respond to Cox on the uphill finish. Chris Rothwell (Ride 24/7) took the bronze medal, outsprinting Alex Van Katwyk (Guernsey CC).
Matthew Cox
“ It feels good! I went away through the feed on the last lap, I looked back but no one was chasing Etienne came across to me into the head wind on the main road and we worked together till the climb, I led it out and expected Etienne to come round but he just sat on”
Etienne Georgi
“I felt bad all I could do was just sit on him”
Jack Freeman
“I had a late night”
