Out of the Saddle Summer Road Race
Location: Braithwell, Yorkshire
Event: 26 August 2012
Report: Julie Rodman
The Out of the Saddle Summer Road Race was dominated by Node4 - Giordana Racing with their riders occupying the top four places.
The course consisted of 13 laps of the 10km Stainton circuit near Maltby and saw a strong line-up of competitors with representatives from Node 4, Sportscover Altura and Wheelbase among the 59 starters.
After three laps, the Node4 participants made a break with Mike Northey, Marcin Bialoblocki, Pete Williams, Matt Cronshaw and James Moss.
Five other riders stayed with them, including Adam Duggleby (Sportscover Altura RT), Kit Gilham (Herbalife-Leisure Lakes Bikes.com) and Dave Shackleton of Wilsons Wheels RT.
The 10-man break stayed away happily until the seventh lap when Northey, Bialoblocki, Williams and Cronshaw made a break for it.
The four Node4 riders kept it tight for the remaining laps before sprinting for the finish line with Northey taking the win.
