EMEG Road Race League: Nottinghamshire Round
Location: Willoughby-on-the-wolds, Nottinghamshire
Event: 9 June 2013
Report: Snowdon Sports
Steve Young (WyndyMilla) took his second victory of the year in the Nottinghamshire Round of the EMEG Road Race League in Willoughby-on-the-wolds on Sunday.
The 29-year-old Grantham rider had previously racked up a win in the Pedalpushers Circuit Race League back in April but this was the first EMEG event that he had entered in 2013.
With four miles to go on the last lap, a break of three riders, Steve Young, Jack Green (VC St Raphael) and Jason Gurney (www.twenty3c.co.uk) had opened up a gap of 25 seconds on the chasing pack and looked to maintain their speed going into the final straight.
Gurney dropped away from the challenge and Young had enough in the tank to pull away, taking victory by two bike lengths.
Steve said after the race: “We knew from what the marshalls were telling us that if we kept the speed at 25mph going into the final stage of the race, we would maintain our gap over the pack.
“From speaking to some friends who raced too, they thought they’d got enough time to catch us but left it too late.
“It came down to Jack and me and I had another gear above him and managed to get clear of him.”
