McCaffrey Wins Oakley Village RR
Oakley, Buckinghamshire, 52 miles
Event: 9th July 2011
Report: Snowdon Sports
AARON McCaffrey (Virgin Active) took victory in the Oakley Village Road Race in Buckinghamshire on Saturday, winning a seven-up sprint for the line after timing his attack to perfection.
The 41-year-old from Milton Keynes was sat back in the bunch as the decisive break went away early in the 52-mile race, but he was part of a chasing group of seven riders which caught the escapees with half a lap remaining.
The day also included a round of the Women's National Team Series, which attracted a full-strength squad from Motorpoint.
But they could not stop Amy Roberts (For Viored) from taking the victory, leaving the Motorpoint riders to be content with the minor placings.
Roberts broke away with two laps remaining alongside Lucy Garner (Motorpoint), and got the better of her rival in the sprint for the finish as they were lashed by torrential rain.
In fact the whole race had seen showers, which contributed to an early crash as well as one on the final lap.
The two main races were part of a day of cycling events which also included a family fun ride in the morning, which took in one lap of the same circuit the main races used.
