SW Regional Road Race Championships

Sunday 17th May saw the annual SW Champs run on the newly tested “Primavera” course at Hatherleigh. The strong field of riders were blessed with dry conditions. The course involved 5 laps of a circuit around Halwill Junction with an additional loop at the end taking in some nasty climbs around Okehampton. 6 MDCC riders took to the start as well as ex MDCC riders Seb Baylis and James Davey, now both 1st Category riders


The main selection in the race took place at around 40 miles and MDCC’s Andrew Parker and Jason Poore both made the break. The initial break split again with Jason Poore making the front group and eventually coming home in 6th place. A great result from Jason who has ridden himself back into great form this season. Andrew came home with a very respectable 12th.

At the front of the race Seb Baylis pulled off an amazing solo ride, going on his own from a long way out and holding out for the win. James Davey was 3rd with a great performance.

Commiserations to David Johnson who punctured after 24 miles, ending his day early. In the Junior race, MDCC’s Matt Langworthy came home in 7th, also a notable mention to Charlie Meredith another ex MDCC rider who came 3rd. The Women’s race saw Nicky Quant finish in 13th place.
