A Late surge from Mark to take 3rd

A glorious evening in Siddington saw the annual return of the Macclesfield Wheelers Evening Road Race for what would be the team’s 5th race on the circuit in as many weeks.  

 

A conservative start to the race saw Steven Fidler (Crewe Clarion) sneak off the front of the bunch to claim a solo victory.

In the race behind Matt worked hard on the first lap attempting to break free of the group on a number of occasions. Despite his efforts he was unable to snap the elastic and was brought back consistently. The race was erratic with multiple riders attempting to jump the bunch rather than working to chase the early break.

Mark attacked on the penultimate lap and distanced himself from the peloton and he was eventually joined by Matt Langridge (Planet X).

The duo would ultimately hold of the bunch for the remainder of the race with Mark placing 3rd overall.  

Matt and Ben worked to disrupt the chase and Ben took 4th in the bunch sprint for 7th overall.

A huge thank you to Anthony Allan and his team for organising a fantastic event!
