Location: Gosling Park Stadium, Welwyn
Event: 22 June 2012
Report: Peter Waghorn


Once again the weather seriously affected the attendance and hopefully, if and when, a warm, wind free evening occurs we will get back to the early season numbers.

In each of the senior A League events a battle ensued between Mike Broadwith and John McClelland – non sprinter Broadwith put in some ferocious attacks but each time McClelland closed the gap and waited for the next one. Mark Smith also countered the move and those three riders took the honours in the Scratch and Block handicap events.

Broadwith rode away on his own to win the Devil and the limited field set off in the 35 lap 10 mile.

Pressure from Broadwith decimated the field and by half distance just four riders remained. The usual three plus David Langlands. Once again Broadwith tried his hardest to get away but each move was closed down – Langlands then lost contact and at the finish John McClelland won from Mark Smith with Mike Broadwith taking third spot but getting full marks as the most aggressive rider.

In the youth A series Jordan Mooney was in fine form and matched by Glen Dossett in the Youth B events each rider taking 3 victories.

In the CDE group two Kieren races replaced two of the usual 3 lap handicap events and were won by Alexi Edwards, who is the overall series leader. The final 4 lap Handicap was won by limit rider Grace Cadzow for her first win of the season.
