SERRL Cyclopark Evening Series Race 15
Location: Cyclopark, Gravesend, Kent
Event: 5 September 2013
Report: Snowdon Sports
JUNIOR George Wood (Maldon & District CC) claimed his second closed circuit win of the season in round 15 of the SERRL Evening Series at Gravesend’s Cyclopark.
The Canvey Island 17-year-old got the better of elite rider Dean Shannon (Twenty3cOrbea.co.uk-Focus), twice a winner on the circuit this summer, and Alex Minting (Neon-Velo) in the hour and a half-long feature race of the night.
The event for third and fourth categories came down to a bunch sprint after Lee Staples (GS Avanti) had been off the front for a long while, only to be brought back as the chasers mixed in with the lapping bunch from the main race.
Staples had to settle for third place as Thomas Bruno (Eagle RC) secured his third win of the year ahead of Jeremy Bishop (Bigfoot CC). Fourth in the two preceding rounds, 54-year-old veteran Linda Endicott (Kent Velo Girls) stepped up to lead in the women’s field.
