Road Team Report

10 03 2014

Just a quick update on how the team got on in their first outing in the CNDW (Cycling Development North West) road race at Pimbo in Lancashire last weekend.  The following was received from Team Manager Eric photo 2 CDNW-Pimbo 2.3.14Wilkinson – an encouraging start to the campaign !photo 1- CDNW-Pimbo 2.3.14

The team did well on Sunday. A good quality field of about 80 riders.  Alex (Jones) and Richard (Wilkinson) got into an early break that thought might ‘stick’ but it came back together.  A lot of aggressive attacking which resulted in a break of 10 getting away – which included Richard. This gradually pulled away from the field. again a lot of action in the break with Richard doing more than his share to pull back ‘splits’ The break included 4 Rapha Condor riders and they played it well. The break eventually split with a couple of laps to go with Graham Briggs winning – having sat in for most of the way!  

Richard  finished 10th, Mike (Harrison) did a good ride coming in 14th at the head of the bunch and Alex comfortable in the middle of the pack. All the top riders found it difficult so I don’t think our team is far off the pace”
