Wallis Cycles Spring Series Race 2
Location: Salt Ayre Sports Centre, Lancaster, Lancashire
Event: 16 March 2013
Report: Snowdon Sports
It was as you were at the Salt Ayre circuit as Simon Wilson (Team Corley Cycles) followed up his opening week win with victory in round two of the Wallis Cycles Spring Series.
A fast first few laps shredded an improved field for the feature race, and eventually a seven-strong group forged clear to fight out the finish where Wilson proved best in the sprint ahead of national hill climb champion Jack Pullar (Madison Genesis) and Richard Hepworth (Node4 Giordana Racing).
The fourth category race ended in a bunch sprint won by David Mirfield (Ride On) , and the women’s race also came down to a mass sprint where Katie Archibald (City of Edinburgh RC) came out on top.
