Brief report of the day up on Bike Radar
http://www.bikeradar.com/au/road/news/a ... fun-38490/
Very exciting racing first up with the under 19 boys, with Guy Frail and Tom Green staying together the whole race, finishing in a sprint with half a wheel between them.
Then in the Mens races a Group of 5 had formed with Sid Taberlay, Nick Both, Garry Milburn, Oli Whalley and Carl Fokkema (Masters 1,2) riding together for about half the race before punctures first saw Oli and the Garry loose touch, (Garry had a particularly sloppy wheel change so lost a lot of time). Carl moved to the front for a little while until with 3 laps to go Nick lit it up and broke the group apart, Garry was chasing hard and eventually hauled in first Carl, almost catching Sid with 3 laps to go.
