Western League Round 7
Location: Odd Down Cycling Circuit, Bath
Event: 17 November 2013
Report: Snowdon Sports
John Whittington (Team Diabetes UK) took off from the start in a great display of Cyclo-Cross riding to take his third victory of the season in Bath.
A record turnout for the Western League of more than 100 riders turned out to compete on a new circuit including sections of the close-road Odd Down Cycling Circuit, this was mixed with some slippery root section and some hurdles.
Whittington, aged 25 and from Bristol, led from the start using his mountain bike skills to effortlessly bunny hop the hurdles.
Behind Joe Griffiths (Strada) soloed his way to second place and Scott Chalmers (Dream Cycling) did the same for third.
The Veterans race was much closer with the lead changing constantly in the first half before Simon Snowden (Cycology Bikes) put his mark on proceedings to take the win.
