What a day for sarum velo a mixture of emotions. First up was the vets50+race then about 5mins later the ladies race started Peter Williams made a great start and was up with the main bunch for the first awkward part of the course.
Then the Ladies event started and Lindy Larkin got off to an amazing start leading the bunch on to the technical part of the circuit.
Peter battled his way round the circuit and managed to stay up with the main pack.
Lindy was still doing really well keeping in front and still having the odd tussle with the 50+male riders who started in front.
Lindy managed to battle on but got caught by one of the Veteran ladies riders who eventually won the race with lindy Coming in second but
getting 1st senior rider so it was an amazing first place podium for lindy
Peter Williams did a great ride and came in at 54th so well done Peter keep. Up the great work
Next up we’re the senior men’s race with Alex watkins and David Brazier both riders were really up for the race as lindy had just won and wanted to be up there
Alex and Dave both got of to a great start
Dave then managed to get in front of Alex and pretty much stayed there most of the race
The course was demanding and technical in places
Then disaster struck David on the second to last lap while in front he came a cropper taking down another rider in the process he broke his gear shifter and was stuck in a high gear. Lindy and Dave (Alex dad) were in the pits with David spare bike and managed to get him back out quickly
The damaged lever sram brake gear lever if anyone has a spare let Dave know.
David and Alex battled on to the final lap Alex managed to finish in great 14th place and David managed to get up to 19th place I’m sure if David had not crashed he would have been up there with Alex
Well done team what a great day’s racing you all. Did the club proud thanks for your support
