Twickenham Vets/Womens Series Race 2


Graham Crow


Twickenham Vets/Womens Series Race 2


Dry, sunny and blowy conditions welcomed the riders in the second of the Twickenham CC run vets series. After 2 or 3 laps Graham Crow (Handsling RT) attacked hard and gapped the field, only being followed by Gianluca Cappello (VC Meudon). The bunch chased them and Cappello dropped back with Crow forging ahead on his own.


Crow stayed out for around 10 miles, but eventually resigned to the fact that his solo break wasn’t working and dropped back to the bunch.
Graham Crow of Handsling Racing
With around 25 minutes of racing left a group of 3 riders gapped the field by around 20 seconds. Crow saw his opportunity and attacked again to join the group. They worked well, each took a turn and forged a gap over the main bunch. Meanwhile Gray Turnock (Finsbury Park CC) saw the danger and soloed away from the main field to join the breakaway riders which by this time had diminished to 3. The 4 stayed clear of the pursuing bunch. Gray Turnock sprinted to take the win just ahead of Graham Crow. The Bunch sprint being won by Cappello, closely followed by Peter Cole (Handsling RT).
