James Moss made it back-to-back wins with victory in the Richmond Road Race on Sunday. The Velosure-Giordana rider won the North East Region Road Race title last weekend and continued his good form here.
After his win last week, the 29-year-old Newcastle rider had hoped to be picked for the Ras in Ireland but missed out on selection.
However, he quickly put the disappointment behind him with another great ride, crossing the line 30 seconds ahead of Achieve Skinnergate’s Ben Hetherington.
There was an early break in the race towards the end of the first lap and Moss was alive to the threat, bridging across shortly after with two other riders.
The breakaway managed to hold a gap of about a minute over the bunch and with six-and-a-half miles left, Moss made his attack on the final climb. Nobody was able to respond and he was comfortable in the end.
Speaking after the race, Moss said: “I did almost the same as last week, I really committed on the final climb and I wasn’t sure I’d be able to get away but I felt good and I took it on the descent.
“It’s such a hard circuit, you just have to look after each other. When I did commit though, I got out in the open and it was so much easier to defend on my own.
“I trained very hard for last weekend, hoping to be picked for the Ras. I was disappointed not to be but it is still nice to win races. I hope it continues.”
In the support race, Ian Lee of RAF CC took victory from Pioneer Scott’s Tony Fawcett. After a break of five riders got away, it came down to a sprint finish which Lee edged.
