Road: Ferguson sprints to Warter win


Location: Warter, East Riding of Yorkshire
Event: 8 July 2012
Report: Snowdon Sports

Scoring his second win of the year, Oldham junior Joshua Ferguson (Team Wheelguru) sprinted home at the head of the bunch for victory in the 40-mile Wilsons wheels road race for third and fourth categories.

The hilly nature of the Warter circuit, in the East Riding of Yorkshire, unusually failed to split the field and left a 30-plus group to contest the finish with 18-year-old Ferguson taking the verdict from Callum Grieve (Loughborough Students CC), 19, and veteran Sean Smith (Halifax Imperial Wheelers).
