Clayton Spring Classic 2018
Updated: Jan 15, 2019
This past weekend saw the Spokes Racing Team entering The Clayton Spring Classic on a bitterly cold morning with Scott Howieson and Alex Dent in the first group due to their age and Ben Barlow and myself in the second group. Alex and Scott did a great job of keeping themselves out of trouble until their group was caught by the second and were both heavily active with the other boys working together to try and get a group away. The elites caught the larger group with around half the race remaining and with a break of a couple of minutes up the road already they started driving the groups hard. The boys all rode a good race with myself and Alex placing just outside of the group of elites and Scott not far behind that. Unfortunately Ben had to withdraw from the race due to illness but will be back at it next week at Salt Ayre ready to get back at it. All in all a great first competitive outing with our new and established sponsors. Lots more to come...!
