Audlem CC’s First National Champion

17 09 2010

Congratulations to MIKE WILSON for winning the 2010 National Criterium championships.

Mike competed in the League of Veteran Racing Cyclist’s event comprising of a field of 25 seasoned amateur cyclists.   Mike’s sprinting power sealed his win out manoeuvring his fellow escapee as he launched into a Mark Cavendish esque lunge for the line.

The race was  on a short circuit and was based on a hour of racing plus 3 addtional laps.  Mike sprung the attack early in the race and the rest of the field had no chance as his small breakaway built a race winning lead.

Modest as ever Mike did not expect to win, but we all know when there’s a prize on the line he turns into modern day Hinault.

So if you see Mike with his champions jersey out on the road give him a pat on the back as our first national champion.
