Chris McNamara wins the 2014 Kenneth Lush Memorial Road Race

Posted 20/07/2014 - Frank Rawlins

Report by Snowdon Sports

Race winner Chris McNamara was one of four Pedal Heaven Colborne RT riders in the top ten at the Kenneth Lush Memorial Road Race at Bendish Hall in Hertfordshire on Sunday.

The 39-year-old faced stiff opposition from CC Luton’s Ashley Cox and Arctic Tacx RT rider Danny Axford but took victory by half a bike length.

The race exploded into life with three laps to go as Cox made a break off the front. He was later joined by McNamara and Axford and together the trio of riders managed to stay a minute ahead of the main bunch.

The 79-mile race came down to a three-man contest and coming into the finish, McNamara was able to steal the march on his rivals to take the win. Cox was second, pipping Axford to second spot on the podium.

Chris said: “Ashley Cox got away on the hill and I bridged across to him a couple of laps later, he’s strong rider. Then, with three or four miles to go, Danny joined us too and he put some good work in.

“By the time we got to the finish I think we were the three slowest riders on the track! We’d got a good gap over the rest of the bunch already though.

“I won the masters a month or so ago and I’ve been entering lots of crits and time trials, doing the 10s to mix it up a little. I’ve been trying to beat Connall Yates, he beat me by second yesterday!

“I’m entering the London Dynamo Road Race next week and then I’m going to have a go at the National 25. I don’t hold much hope for that but I’m feeling good.”
