This weekend was the TLI National Closed Circuit Champs & Mark made it 6 Top 10 finishes for the season in the Cat A race. Mark tried a number of times to get away from the bunch including spending a full lap off the front before being reeled back in. The race came down to a mass sprint which although boxed in at the beginning he continued to move forward in.
The next race held 3 categories within the same race, Matt racing in cat S, Ben in cat M.
It was a quick start and Ben tried an early attack to no avail. Matt managed to break free with a couple of riders who although organised themselves quickly were eventually brought back after a few laps.
Further into the race a break of 5 riders formed which Ben managed to bridge across to, the 6 riders worked well together managing to stay away for the remainder of the race. 3 riders from Pro Vision controlled the move well with one getting away to take the win. Forced to go from the front Ben began his sprint early but couldn’t hold off the riders behind, eventually taking a place on the podium in his category, 5th overall.
Meanwhile Matt worked hard in the group and finished in the bunch.
Thanks again to all who came to watch and support the racing this weekend!
