Report by Julian Freeman
Although there were numerous attempts during the race breakaways were finding it difficult to stay clear, probably due to the windy conditions. Steve Wade was very active at the front of the bunch and tried to get into several moves but this wasn't to be his lucky day. With a lap to go 18 riders pulled clear over the top of the hill including Julian Freeman, but with a lack of cohesion this group was soon caught by the bunch.
On the last lap one brave rider, Christian Vincent from East London Velo took his chance and broke clear. Riding strongly into the headwind he maintained his gap all the way to the finish to take a great victory. The final long drag to the line saw no attacks take place as what was left of the bunch shadow boxed in readiness for the sprint. In a very close and hard fought sprint for 2nd place Julian Freeman took 6th place . Steve Wade came in safely in the main group after an active and attacking race.
A great event that was well organised by our friends at Peterborough CC.
