Crawforth storms to Wessex win

Posted 29/12/2014 - Kerie Wallace

Jody Crawforth (Hargroves Cycles) set the early pace in the latest round of the Wessex League at Southampton Sports Centre, and by the second lap he had started to establish a lead which he held onto until the end finishing nearly two minutes clear of second place rider and team mate Matt Macdonald.

The 34-year-old rider from Guildford led a trio of Hargroves riders over the early stages of the race before Andy Hargroves started to slip back as the pace increased at the front.

The race was held at a very cold and frosty Southampton Sports Centre and was held as a memorial to Geoff Shergold, a stalwart of the Wessex and UK cyclo-cross scene, who passed away in 2013, and the race was promoted by Crabwood CC.

Once the initial lap was completed the trio from Hargroves Cycles began to put some distance into the remainder of the pack chasing them down, but first Sam Allen (UC Nantes Atlantique) and then Jamie Newall (Pedal Heaven) began to get across the gap.

By lap three Crawforth was a minute up on Macdonald and nearly two minutes over third place Allen. Joe Andrews (Eden Veranda Racing) was now the leading under 23 rider having passed Andy Hargroves on his way to fifth place.

As the remaining laps ticked away the places remained the same with just the time differences changing. At the flag Crawforth was 1-47 clear of Macdonald with Allen coming in third at 2-41.

Earlier in the day Crispin Doyle (Hargroves Cycles) managed to hold off a charging Mike Simpson (GS Henley) to win the over-40 veterans class. Doyle and Simpson broke free of the remainder of the riders and were soon pulling away from third place and first junior rider Tom Sewell (Cotswold Veldrijden).

The third veteran was Tim Hyde (GS Henley) and along with Graham Rogerson (Cotswold Veldrijden) and Phil Bowley (Alton CC) these riders completed to top six.

In the over-50 veterans category it was Dave McMullen (Cotswold Veldrijden) leading Steve Davis (Hargroves Cycles) Malcolm Cross (Hargroves Cycles) and Chris Hutchings (VC Venta).

Helen Pattinson (Solent Pirates) was having better luck this week having a trouble free run to winning her first ever Wessex League race following a mechanical in the last race whilst leading.

In the over-40 veterans race Doyle and Simpson stretched their lead over Sewell to leave Hyde, Rogerson and now Dean Hitchings (Eden Veranda Racing) to fight it out in the middle of the race.

On the final lap Rogerson managed to catch and pass Hyde in the woods for third vet. Tim Costello (GS Vecchi) was now leading the over-50s but he had Steve Davis right on his wheel, and Chris Hutchings was 22 seconds further back.

On the final lap Doyle made a strong attack as he tried to shake away the charging Simpson, and he finally did so at the back of the course as they came into view. On the line Doyle’s winning margin was 12 seconds over Simpson with Sewell at 1-46.

Steve Davis held off Costello by four seconds to win the over-50s race with Chris Hutchings third.

Elliott Lassiter (Cotswold Veldrijden) was made to work hard for his win in the youth race as he had to come back from a slow start to finally pass Ed Gronbech (Oxford City RC) and Charlie Cooper (Eden Veranda Racing) with Emily Wadsworth (Beeline Cycles) the first under-16 girl with her younger sister Maddie taking second place and winning the under-14 girl category.
