Maxgear Race Report – 5th June

Team Work makes the dream work at Horwich Road Race 5th June 2013

With many of our riders finding some mid season form the team was confident of a result at the Horwich CDNW Road Race.

Run as a Handicap format the team has always done well here with wayne narrowly missing a victory in 2011 being caught on the line to take 3rd and with Mike Ashurst taking the win in 2012.

The team plan was to keep the 2 4th cat riders away if possible by the remaining team in the E123 group following all attacks and neutralising any moves that looked like they could chase the front group. The plan worked perfectly with Adam and Ian working well with 4 other riders and Wayne, John, Martyn and James working very hard to stop any of the strong riders including Pro riders from getting away.

In the end the 2 riders still had 3 minutes lead and Adam unleashed an impressive sprint to take his first win @ only 17yrs of age and in his first full season! Ian came home 7th after he’d worked so hard to keep the pace high and John 10th as part of the bunch sprint.
