FRESH from his victory in the opening round of the National Junior Series (pictured), Tao Geoghegan-Hart continued the winning habit in the feature race of Eagle RC’s Sprint Circuit meeting at Redbridge.

The 17-year-old CC Hackney talent powered home ahead of Adam French (East London Velo) – continuing a run of near misses with his third second place of the year – after 75 minutes of racing on the East London circuit ahead of the promoting club’s Bryan Crump.

Edward Farnell (Cambridge CC) won the supporting third and fourth category race with Edmund Bradbury (Cambridge University CC) in ninth place shortly after claiming victory in the preceding fourths-only event.
