Apologies for delay

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


Entry into the race includes 2 tickets into The London Bike Show.

The field will be limited to 25 organiser selected riders plus 5 reserves. 

The Imperial Racing Team's focus switches rapidly in mid February as the innovative race organisers bring to a conclusion their highly successful West London based winter race series before hot-footing across the Capital to bring together The London Bike Show Crit in the indoor confines of the London Docklands.

The hard-working Imperial team, who only recently launched their West London race workshop, 'Imperial Cycles', will be managing the criterium races being held as part of The London Bike Show (February 13th to 16th).

Lucy Collins, Imperial Racing's race manager: "We're both honoured and excited to have been asked by The London Bike Show to manage these races. Competitive cycling in the UK is enjoying an all-time high and our intent is that over the course of the four days of the show we'll be able to showcase the vibrant state of UK cycling, both professional and amateur, to an increasingly interested public.

"With tickets for the show almost sold out, this is looking to be an excellent opportunity for teams and riders to present their 2014 line-ups and colours to an enthusiastic audience ahead of the season. Riders need to act fast though, we're limited to a field of just 25 riders per category, so riders are encouraged to enter immediately: the final line up will published within 7 days of the event."

YOUNG Spirit Bikes Racing Team rider Chris Dredge powered to victory in the E12 race at the London Bike Show Criteriums at the Excel Centre in London Docklands on Saturday afternoon.

The 20-year-old from Milton Keynes took the win ahead of Aprire Bikes’ Phil Dempsey, 32 and from Surrey, while Mike Smith (Cycleworks.co.uk) was third.

For Dredge, it was his first win for several months, but it comes after he secured several second places in the Abbeygate Developments/Corley Cycles Series at the Milton Keynes Bowl near his Buckinghamshire home.

Meanwhile, in the fourth category race, it was London 27-year-old George Garnier (The 5th Floor CC) who took the win, beating Twickenham CC duo Tim O’Rourke and Darren Austin who had to settle for second and third respectively.

For Dredge, his victory came the day before the whole team headed out to Portugal for two weeks of warm weather training ahead of their planned assault on the domestic racing scene.

“It’s great to get a win so early in the season,” he said. “From the start of the race it was pretty aggressive but it split up quickly with a couple off the front, and eventually me and Phil Dempsey got away.

“My team mates were lying third and fourth a bit off the pace so I was holding back to see if they could get up with us, but it wasn’t to be, and we ended up lapping the field. It was hard work sprinting every 15 or 20 seconds for half an hour, but it was great to get the win, especially for my sponsors – Today’s Cyclist, Moore and Large, Lake, High 5 and Moda.

“We’re heading to a camp near Lisbon for a fortnight now, and we all hope to get some good miles in before the start of the season.

“We’re targeting the National Road Series, but we should be starting at the Roy Thame Cup and the Jock Wadley Memorial on March 8 and 9.”
