The morning Gt Ellingworth 3/4 category race has a full field of 80 riders.

The afternoon GA Bennett E123 race currently has 67 confirmed entries so there will be on the day entry on a first come first served basis.

Race programme and Rider lists can be downloaded from www.withamwheelers.co.uk

*************************************************************************************************************

This years GA Bennett E123 race will also incorporate the East Midlands Senior Regional Road Race championships. This is due to 2 national series events being held in the region the weekend before when the event would otherwise have been held.

East Mids riders must enter by the closing date if they wish to be considered for the championships. They will be given entry priority but with a field limit of 80 riders and considering the entry in previous years it is expected most of those who enter will get a ride.

The circuit is close to the A1 and approximately 30 miles North of Peterborough. It is around 12 miles long and on quiet narrow rolling country roads with the main hill around 1 km before the finish.

For the third year running the prize fund is boosted thanks to support from PedalPushers of Grantham the Ultimate Racing Bike Shop.

Provisional Results

Witham Wheelers Road Races – Supported by PedalPushers

The GT Ellingworth 3/4 category event over 48 miles had a good field of 70 riders on a rolling course of mainly quiet but narrow country lanes. As the race started a light drizzle descended which seemed to make some riders quite nervous and by the end of the first  lap some 26 riders had already lost contact with the main bunch with 2 riders just off the front as they came through the finish line. After that it was more a case of attrition and it wasn’t until the start of the last lap when Chris McNaughton (Leicester Forest) established a small gap, which the bunch seemed content to watch, as he pushed it out to 30 seconds. As he hit the hill with one km to go, the bunch was at last reacting but it was too late as Chris stayed clear to win by 5 seconds with Ross Simmonds (Bio Cadenza) winning the bunch sprint.

The afternoon GA Bennett E/1/2/3 category event held over 83 miles, also this year incorporated the East Midlands senior road race champs, due to date clashes the previous weekend and had another good field of 70 riders.

On the first lap Tom Neale (Phil Corley)had an 18 second lead but a lap later he had been replaced by a four man break Adam Gascoigne, (Pedal Power), Jim Coleman (PedalPushers), Malcolm Smith (St Ives) and Carl Dyson (Achieve Skinner gate) which had a one minute lead over the chasing bunch. This break was to stay out front for almost 4 of the 12 mile laps, although the gap never went much over 1 minute and with 2 laps to go three riders bridged the gap Oliver Davies, Will Haynes (Clay Cross RT) Dave Shackleton (Wills Wheeles) and the bunch at 20 seconds. But as the bell rang Russell Falder (Clay Cross RT) now had a 10 second lead over Lee Baldwin (Champion Systems) Michael Cripps (Army CU) Mike Wragg ( Arbis- Colbert)and the bunch not far behind.  But these 4 soon combined and opened up a 50 second lead, which they held to the finish where Falder proved too strong on the hill to finish a clear winner from Baldwin and Wragg. Tom Neale (Team Corley) finished 5th and won the BC East Mids Regional Championships.
