Mike Binks Memorial Road Race
Location: Stokesley, North Yorkshire
Event: 4 August 2013
Report: Ben Goddard/Snowdon Sports
Nathan Edmondson (Node4-Giordana Racing) sprinted to his first victory of the season from a four-man breakaway in the Mike Binks Memorial Road Race in Stokesley, North Yorkshire.
On a blustery day in North Yorkshire 44 riders set off to complete the 70-mile rolling but tough course.
Straight from the start, on the first lap a group of seven riders rode away from the bunch and worked well together to stay away until the end building up a 1 minute 30 seconds advantage.
Coming up to the finish the leading group of seven riders split up with four coming into the finishing straight together.
Edmondson, aged 23 and from Pool-in-Wharfedale in North Yorkshire, was the fastest of the four beating Thomas Bustard, from Egglescliffe near Middlesbrough, into second and 20-year-old Scott McCrossan, from Lanark in Scotland into third place.
The depleted bunch, which due to the hard conditions saw 15 riders retire, came in 1-30 seconds down.
