A/B Race Report

The race was very active from the start with several riders attacking within the first few miles to form a group of about 10 - then followed by another chasing group of about 8 riders with the remnants of the main group thereafter. First time up Callow Hill the first group split into 7 (I think) with a few of the riders from this leading group dropping back to the second group. The main group fragmenting into several smaller chasing groups of 6, 7’s as the efforts of the hill took its toll.

The leading 7 riders pushed on with the remnants of this group dropping back to join group 2 who came together along with some others coming up from the main group on the straight through Brinkworth to form a larger group of 10-12 riders. The remnants of the main group, 1 group of 7, with the rest in 1’s & 2’s taking up the rear.

Lap 2 - saw the leading group (7 riders) consolidate their lead over group 2 (10-12 riders) who in turn stretched their lead over group 3 which by now had come together to form a group of around 10-12 also.

Lap 3 - saw the lead group whittle down to 5 riders with little other change in the running order in groups 2 & 3 other than a few riders dropping off due to the high work-rate and efforts in their respective groups.

Lap 4  - was the decisive lap seeing the leading group split into 2, one group of 3 riders with 2 others about 1 minute behind. Group 2 by now around 2 minutes down still contained around 10-12 riders, group 3 had by now reduced to just 6 riders as the continued hard work into the wind started to take its toll on their reduced numbers and were by now 6-7 minutes behind the group in front and around 10 minutes behind the leaders.

At the finish a 3 man sprint was contested by the 3 leaders, the 2 dropped riders from the lead group then contested the 4th & 5th places around a minute later. The main group (group 2) which consisted of 11 riders then contested the sprint for the next placings around 4 minutes later with the remnants of group 3 coming in a further 7 minutes behind for the minor placings.

C/D Race Report

In the C/D race there was a steady first lap with the exception of Callow Hill where the fitter/leaner riders tested the legs of the other riders before easing off through Brinkworth.  On face value (lap times) the race appeared to progress at a fairly even pace over the next 3-laps but there was a lot of activity on each lap with a number of riders chancing their arms with small breakaways, particularly on the back of the course (Dauntsey – Grittenham) where a tailwind favoured the brave.

The only rider that succeeded in establishing a break and maintaining it was Martin O’Grady (Team Toachim) on lap 2.  He established a maximum lead of 1 min 40 sec over the group by the following lap.  David Phillips (Corinium CC) and Chris Lowe (Swindon RC) were able to reduce the deficit to 30 seconds at one point but a concerted chase by the peloton and a weakening Lowe saw them swept up again just before the  assent of Callow Hill.

A combination of accelerations and Callow Hill slowly saw the group of 35 C/D riders whittled down to about 25 who were still in contention for the final gallop.  O’Grady, after his successful solo break rolled in 3 secs ahead of the bunch while Garry Clark (Felt Colbournes RT) just got the better of Phillips in the C category race as they clipped off the front with 200m to go with Chris Davis (Bush Healthcare) who got the better and Malcolm Whitehead (Kingsnorth International Nico Sport) and Chris Stone (Redhill CC) in the D category race.
