rankings updated after Thames Velo Races round 5

Many thanks to Tom Burnley and the Team at Thames Velo for their hard work on Sunday. Sadly the National B event had to be abandoned following an incident on the A329 near Little Milton, but despite numerous stories of falls, there apeared to be only one rider requiring hospital treatment.

The Regional B race stayed together pretty much for the duration, with a nervous bunch staying attentive to any moves and a relatively flat course reducing the possibilities for selection.

Although all about positioning in the run in, it was won decisively by James Chapman of Kenilworth Wheelers who, along with Jacob Tresham (Corley Cycles) had a clear gap in the final sprint over the crest of the hill. Jacob catapults Corley up the table with the League Rankings starting to swell around the 20-30 point mark whilst Gavin James adds to the CC Luton tally having taken 3rd place.

results after round 3

Thanks to Lovelo Cinelli RT for hosting round 3 yesterday. The return of the Soulbury Circuit for the Regional B race saw a watchful bunch snuff out any attempts to escape.

Attacks off the front at the top of the rise out of Soulbury by Hemel Hempstead CC, CC Luton and TMG Horizon CT seemed to part of a plan, but the pace was high with very little respite which meant that around 20 riders were DNF.

In the end, it came down a bunch print, with Neil Wass of TMG taking the honours from Ben Stowe of Hemel Hempstead 2nd by half a wheel.
