Report: Snowdon Sports

Returning to the circuit where he honed his racing skills, Luke Grivell-Mellor (Rapha Condor JLT) sprinted to a narrow victory in the feature race of the Wolverhampton Wheelers meeting at Shrewsbury Sports Village.

The Shrewsbury 20-year-old, sharpened by his efforts in the Tour of Normandy which finished last weekend, edged out James Locker (V Sprint) and Elliott Reynolds (Solihull CC) on a cold but dry afternoon.

Winners of the supporting male races were Pete Banham (Fred Williams Cycles) and Jimmy Kershaw (Mid Shropshire Wheelers), while Jennifer Edwards (Rhos On Sea CC) followed up her clean sweep in the Race To The Spring Series at Rhyl by winning the women’s event.
