East London Velo Winter Series #1 - 2|3|4

A dominant ride from Lee Valley Junior Team saw them trouncing the rest of the field, coming home with 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th in round 1 of the East London Velo Winter Series. Nesta Ferguson led the charge followed by Louis Bilyard and Sam Allan... That will be a team to look out for in the coming season.

Rider comments

Was a very interesting race on Saturday made harder by the strong field that showed up. Im not sure if it was planned, if so i must have missed it but right from the start, two of my team mates decided to go long, 50 minutes long to be exact! That made for a solid half an hour of sitting on and annoying the other riders by not chasing until the race came back together. Then it was just a case of making sure no one else got away without at least one Lee Valley rider. A few brakes went but nothing came of them until the last lap when yet another Lee Valley attack went. I Placed myself onto the LVYCC train and waited until the last 150 metres before giving it all. Pleased to see such a dominant performace from our new junior team picking up 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 5th.!

Saturday marked the start of the racing season for me and a lot of the other riders in the field, with form being unknown after a long winter break. The race started off with my teammates, Sam and Marco making a move only a few minutes into the race. They grew their advantage to over 20secs at one point, but a strong effort from Colin and a few of the other riders reeled them back in, with a few laps remaining. Sam who had only been resting for a few minutes decided to have another go with just a lap remaining but was just caught on the line by me and Louis Bilyard with a few meters left. The team showed a strong performance despite my illness and look good going further into the season.
