Report by Phillip Jemmison/Snowdon Sports
James Roe (GVC Edmond De Rothschild) took victory in the annual Redhill Cycling Club open road race on the Norwood Hill Circuit.
The race was fully booked for a field of 80, however 62 Riders rolled out of Newdigate Village Hall to complete eight and a quarter laps of the ten-mile circuit.
Weather during the event was mixed. The roads were damp from rain earlier in the day, and there were two heavy rain showers during the race.
At the end of the first lap, three riders had an advantage on the bunch and Chris McNamara of Pedal Heaven Colbornes RT won the first prime. By the third lap the break was joined with a further rider, thus comprising Ryan Perry (Army Cycling Union), Harold Evans (Cadence Cycling Performance) and Thomas Bowering (VC Meudon).
As the laps passed, the initial break was caught by the bunch. Subsequent racers went off the front during the following laps, with a larger break forming and comprising Steven Baker (Army Cycling Union), Roy Chamberlain (Team Corley Cycles), Michael Cripps (Army Cycling Union), Andrew Boyd (Dulwich Paragon CC), Bevan Humprhires (BH-Solidor-WAH Youth), Sean McGovern (Teamwallis CHH Racing Team), Christopher Morrison (Cadence Cycling Performance), Tom Neale (Team Corley Cycles), James Roe (GVC Edmond De Rothschild) and Max Stedman (Pedal Heaven Colbornes RT).
This break had formed an advantage of two minutes on the bunch at the start of the final lap, where Max Stedman won the prime. However, this break was being chased by Alex Higman of Felt-Colbornes-Hargroves RT who was just a minute down.
The race was won by James Roe of GVC Edmond De Rothschild, after three hours and nine minutes of racing. The other results are awaiting validation by the Chief Commissaire.
Redhill Cycling Club thank all the entrants for taking part in the event, the club volunteers and BC Commissaires for enabling the event, and C&N Cycles in Redhill for sponsorship.
