Friday night saw another good evening’s racing – the Senior A and Youth A groups being particularly competitive.

Prestige Velo riders John Mc Clelland and Kristian Woolf dominated the Senior A category battling it out with the local Welwyn Wheelers riders and Mike Broadwith of Artic SRAM for the minor places.

The final 10 Mile saw a group of seven riders get away by half distance and the high pace reduced the numbers down to five in the last few laps. At the end McClelland took the honours from Woolf and Andrew Hastings of Finchley RT and Broadwith with Welwyn’s Henry Farrell out of the points in fifth place.

In the Senior B group Anthony Morris of CC Ashwell won the opening 10 lap scratch while Joe Gorman of Stevenage made a last lap dash to take the Odds and Evens 10 lap Block Pursuit. Welwyn’s Sam Dossett and Gorman tied on points for the 10 lap points – the decision going down to the final lap.

The 15 strong Youth A (Under 16) section saw flat out racing in all four events – Jack Plumley was pushed hard by Archie Wishart and Youth B (Under 14) rider Charles Page who was promoted up into the senior group but put in some strong finishes to take two well earned second places

Hillingdon Slipstreamers’ Carl Jolly dominated the youth BC (Under 12 and Under 14) group taking all four races in four different disciplines while the wide age band in the CDE (Under 8, Under 10 and Under 12) group saw Welwyn’s Christian Manzi take the opening scratch race but the next three handicap races went to front runners as the scratch riders spent too much time watching each other instead of chasing the limit riders. A lesson to be learnt in the next few weeks?
