Rapha Condor-JLT notched up another UCI victory when Kristian House outsprinted Mark Christian at the end of the 116-mile Beaumont Trophy in Northumberland on Sunday.
House, 34 and from Middlewich in Cheshire, looked strong throughout the decisive break and showed some of the form which led to him finishing third in the Tour Series at Edinburgh a couple of weeks ago.
Both House and Team Raleigh’s Mark Christian had been part of a break of 25 riders which went clear on the first circuit, which covered a small 14-mile lap to the north of Stamfordham, before tackling four laps of a much larger, 22-mile loop which included four climbs of the tough Ryals climb which featured in last year’s National Championships.
The 25-strong break included four riders from NFTO Pro Cycling, and as they worked to stay clear the gap grew quickly, to 50 seconds at the end of the first circuit to almost two minutes as they reached the end of the first big circuit.
By this time a chase group had been formed, and 17 riders were 1:47 back, with the bunch more than five minutes off the pace. At around half distance, as the leading 25 hurtled round the second lap of the big circuit, they were 2:38 up on the chasers, while the bunch had drifted out to more than ten minutes back – effectively out of contention with most of the big teams having plenty of rider representation up the road.
The pattern continued for the third large loop as, with 60km to go, the leading 25 were 3:30 ahead of the chasers, with the bunch more than 15 minutes back.
But as thoughts turned to the finish, several riders didn’t fancy a 25-rider sprint finish, and a break of eight riders clipped off the front, establishing a lead of around 45 seconds with 14 miles to go, and the remaining 16 chasers desperately trying to latch back on.
But with House driving hard, they were not to be caught. He and Mark Christian attacked again in the closing stretch, with House crossing the line around a second ahead of Christian, arms aloft.
