Jake martin grabs 1st spot from Lawrence Carpenter in the E/1/2’s


A massively popular day all round owing to the near perfect Winter’s day and welcome relief from the Bladerunner like spate of recent rain.


The Women’s Go-Race lined up and started 30 seconds after the men and it was clear that the trepidation from previous races being replaced with eagerness to get riding. At the finale it was very close on the line with Sasha Quarrington (Zappis Ladies Team) getting the verdict from Jennifer Allum (Dulwich Paragon) and Christine Pout (Verulam CC) just taking third place from Sally Stubbs (Imperial RT).


A big field rolled out in the 4th Cat race, a good proportion of which were from London Dynamo and Kingston Wheelers – it’s great to have the support of these clubs. The race was very active from the start with Steve Morgan (Twickenham CC) with team mate Darren Austin in support and these two continued to ride at the front and force the pace. At the bell Jason Braund (Imperial College CC) and Samuel Andrew (Kingston Wheelers CC) broke clear with a spirited attack, but unfortunately were caught round Brian’s Bends with 300m to go. Another fast but safe sprint with Daniel Marett crossing the line first in front of James Leech (London Dynamo) with Chris Jubb (Pearson Cycles) taking third.


Tim Childs (Westerley CC) in wins the Imperial Cycles random prize and can look forward to his bike having a thorough spruce up at Imperial HQ in Isleworth!


A full field for the E123 race ensured it was manic from the start, lapping in just over two minutes for the 1.6 km circuit. The field was soon strung out with many riders hanging on and waiting for the inevitable attack from Jake Martin. Steve Golla (High Wycombe RT) always animates a race and with form from a very successful cyclo cross season rode very strongly and made many suffer. Jake Martin (Pedal Heaven) and Lawrence Carpenter (Catford CC Equipe/Banks) were up for the chase, continually attacking but they did not free themselves until 15 km to go, steadily pulling away. Graham Crow (Twickenham CC), Elliot Brown (VC Meudon), Dan Thut (London Dynamo) and Dominic Clegg (Reading CC) remained positive trying to forge a gap and close on the leading two.


In the run in Martin led around the bends and just held off Carpenter by a 1/10th second. If both Martin and Carpenter are still on an upward building phase they can probably look forward to a very successful road season, both riding for well organised pro teams. Despite a heavy cough father to be Vince Halpern (Handsling racing) produced another strong sprint to grab third and more series points holding off Josh Jones (Cambridge University CC), Jacek Reder and consistent James Norris (High Wycombe).


Taking first place in the 3rd cat section of the race was Neil Heffernan (Inverse – Cycling Components RT) and in 14th place for second overall was Kevin Argent (Sigma Sport La Fuga) followed by Will Greig (SW Rouleurs) in 3rd place and Russell Short (London Dynamo) in 4th.
