This Sunday Meudon-Pedal Heaven-Le Col will be promoting the final 2nd/3rd cat event of the year with a 60-mile blast around the Seale circuit. The circuit measures 3.9 miles in length and held on small rural roads with narrow sections through Seale and The Sands. The finish area is next to Binton Wood car park on the Elsted road.
With only 37 riders pre-entered, spaces are still available if you’re looking for some racing. Let’s hope that the wet and windy weather we have endured recently holds off for the race on Sunday.
Almost two weeks ago, Norwood Paragon promoted the Handicap Championships on the Kirdford circuit with 60 riders taking to the start line. The riders tackled 60 miles of strong racing but were blessed with warm sunshine throughout the event.
Due to the strength of the earlier scratch groups, the race favourites were unable to make the catch and finished over 4 minutes behind the leading group of seven.
In the end, it was Addiscombe CC rider George Kingaby who won the event sprinting to victory ahead of 2nd place rider, Nigel Langridge, and 3rd place woman rider, Alice Lethbridge. The remaining four riders crossed the line seconds apart from each other. David Creeggan, who finished in 8th place, brought home a small group of eight 1 minute and 30 seconds behind the winner George.
These are provisional but will be confirmed shortly;
Sussex Revolution Barcombe Road Race
On the 8th September, Sussex Revolution promoted a 2nd/3rd cat event on the Barcombe circuit. Steve Calland won the event from a small break that he instigated early on in the race. He was quickly joined by James Bonham (Paceline RT), Adam Cotterell (Project 51), and Richard Cartland (Southdowns Bikes CASCO Pet Racing Club) with George Clark (Spirit Tifosi) bridging over some miles later.
The break of 5 then stayed away until the finish, with Steve taking the win, but it was close as the bunch were not that far behind. Full results on our website
