Bournemouth Cycleworks Moreton Series#7 Report/Results

Phil Cole (Bournemouth Cycleworks-Vitec Fire-Ford Civil) won round 7 of the Moreton series, a first win for the team & the series sponsor. Riding in the “Blues”, Cole took advantage of some generous handicapping, compounded by a horsebox that turned into the narrow lane between corners 1 & 2 ahead of the “Reds”. By the time the slow moving traffic had cleared the luckless scratch group were nearly 3 minutes down and effectively out of the race.
To their credit they chased hard, driven by the Primera-Teamjobs quintet of Jason Gault, Will Page, Martin Rowland, Sam Wadsley & Matt Norrris they reduced the deficit to some 80 seconds but that was as good as it got.
There was muted celebration from Cole as he crossed the line ahead of teammate Steve Dring and Mike Walkey (Mud Sweat ‘n Gears) but to be fair the “Blues” had ridden well and even without the equine obstacle the “Reds” had their work cut out.
In the womens race Steph Lewars (Poole Wheelers) took the honours well clear of Carol Tilley (Bournemouth Cycleworks Vitec Fire Ford Civil) after Rachel Hackman (RN&RMCA) had withdrawn, a flat battery leaving her with no gears.
