1-2 at the Crest Road Race!

Perfect start to the Eastern Region road race league yesterday the Crest CC Road Race! After a lap long 2 man break, Ben Beynon would have been on for a top 20 placing in grim conditions. Zak Coleman, Morris Bacon and our defending champion from last year Tommy Power worked hard early race to establish themselves in a 6-man breakaway along with Harley Mathews (DAP CC), Tom Elwood (CC London) and Mike Auger (API-Metrow/Bodyby JR). With two laps remaining, the sextet of riders became a trio with Tommy Power and Morris Bacon riding away with Harley Matthews leaving Elmwood, Auger and Coleman to be caught by the chasing group. A lap later saw Tommy Power ride away from his breakaway companions to see him win his second solo win in the race in consecutive years. Morris came in solo in second place followed by Harley Matthews of league new comers DAP CC. Zak managed to salvage a very hard fought and well deserved 10th place after his strong riding in the break.

A huge thank you to Crest CC and the organisers and helpers for yet another well organised race! Roll on Ike Saul!
