John Andrews Road Race

Sun Apr 22

It may have been a nightmare for the judges but it certainly made for an exciting race. After 50 miles, and a number of solo attacks that failed, the peloton all turned into the finishing straight as one bunch. The final kilometre is all up hill and choosing your time to sprint is key. Josh Grey, Team Tor 2000 Kalas, judged it perfectly and crossed the line just ahead of James Rustom and Jamie Atkins (University of Bristol CC).

Our own Chris Brettell finished in a very creditable 16th place. You can download a copy of the results here

A huge thank you to all the helpers. Compliments from all involved were forthcoming at the prize presentation for the high standard of marshalling and organisation. A special mention to Nick Armstrong for the hours of work that he has put in over the last few months to ensure the race ran as smoothly as it did.

See you all again on Sunday 10th June when the Ham Hill Road race cover the same course for 90 miles.
