Weekend Events Report: 6th/7th July 2019


British Para Cycling Road Race Championships


Pembrey Country Park’s closed road circuit played host this weekend to the British Para Cycling Road Race Championships. The two-day event got off to a fantastic start as riders from across the UK battled it out across the various classifications for the National title – with some individuals also looking to defend their titles.

The second race of the afternoon was the WC1-3, MC2+WC5 and the MC3. This made for a very tactical race. Within the MC3, strategies and game plans were employed by the leading three throughout the hour’s race, which saw the winning position change hands on several occasions between the three riders and from two laps out, they really put their foot on the gas. Scottish rider Finlay Graham clinched the win, with Benjamin Watson (Glossop Kinder Velo CC) in second place and Colin Wallace (Deeside Thistle CC) in third place.

Junior Women's Road Race Series


Junior Road Series

Series leader andd Scottish rising star Abba Shackley (Team 22) took second in round two of the Junior Women's Road Series this weekend after being in a breakaway for the majority of the race.

With the severity of the hill climb naturally breaking up the field, three riders found themselves out ahead after five laps of the gruelling circuit as the field of 25 gradually reduced with Katie Scott joining Smith and Shackley.
