Attacking his last two remaining breakaway rivals with two kilometres to go, Chris Lawless (100% ME) soloed to his first road race win of the season at Lakes RC’s 122-km round of the CDNW League in Cumbria.
Returning to form after a disrupted year, Lawless – last year’s national junior road race champion – opened up a gap of 15 seconds by the line to win from David McGowan (Metaltek Kuota RT) – a frequent training companion – with third place going to Scottish raider Scott McCrossan (Paisley Velo RT).
Lawless, 18, made the first decisive move of the race on the third of eight laps of the Ulverston circuit, going away on his own for a lap before joined by three others, including McGowan.
The leading group rose to six going into the second half of the action, but had dropped to five by the main climb on the last lap with around five kilometres to go when Lawless attacked again.
McGowan and McCrossan were the only ones able to follow, and the three powered towards the finish before, sensing that the others weren’t doing too much, Lawless made his winning move on a crosswind section.
“The course is pretty good for me, rolling and not too hilly with more of a power climb,” said Lawless, from Wigan, who is on the BC Olympic Academy programme.
“It’s my first road of the season so things are picking. It’s just been one thing after another with illness and injury but I seem to be getting over that now. Hopefully it will come good over the rest of the season and I can get some good results.”
