Junior rider Sam Connolley took his first ever road race win tonight (3/6/10)  at Hogg Hill  in the 3/J event.  He attacked with one other rider appox 20 mins into the race. After a few laps he was on his own and rode solo for appox 40mins  to take an impressive win. Sam's next road race is the Colchester Rovers event at Peldon on Sunday. 

Also tonight Matt Carter was joined by his brother Ben in the Go-Race event at Dunton. Matt who won the event a few weeks ago didn't  manage to repeat his result but did take 6th. Ben Carter back in the bunch after a long time away from road racing finished strong in the bunch.

Matt Carter took 1st place at the Dunton test track tonight in the go-ride 4th cat race. It was all together on the bell lap and Matt won the bunch sprint to the line. Well done Matt!

Hogg Hill: Mike Tyas and his dad, Dave have been racing in the 4th category events over the last few weeks. Mike being new to road racing decided to choose Hogg Hill as his first circuit race. Although the pace was very fast, he got a good taste of what group racing is all about. Dave (ex 1stCat in his day) back in the bunch after  many years  away said he had enjoyed his day out ;-) 

Ciclos Uno RR: Hamish Hore and Richard Matthews who travelled to Hatfield Heath to take part in their first road event of 2010. There had been a forecast for rain but luck was on their side and it kept dry. Hamish and Richard  were in the action for most of the race but at the finish the winner was Jason Hucklesby 4 St Ives CC. Richard managed 15th and Hamish after a last lap attack just finished out of the placings. For a full result/report Click Here
