Race 2 Torworth 10/05/2018
The 2018 NMRRL finally started at Torworth after the late cancellation of the first races last week due to roadworks. This week was the turn of Groups B & C in mild and calm conditions.
The Group B race saw few attacks with only John Hind, Craig Preece (both Bolsover & District CC) & Chris Last (Velo 365) opening up a small gap at the end of the first of the 7 laps, then Phil English (TLI) & Edward Fisher (TLI) gaining a few seconds with 3 laps to go and finally Rob Copeland (Sheffrec CC) attacking at the bell, all being brought back by the bunch.
At the finish, the bunch sprint was won by Copeland ahead of Darren Johnson-Yates (TLI) & English, with Rob Blackburn (8Point8 Group) & Michael Newton (Barnsley Road Club) rounding off the top five.
The Group C race was even less eventful with only one breakaway of any note, when Chris Green (TLI) opened up a gap with 3 laps to go. The inevitable bunch sprint was clearly won by Kieran Smith (Bolsover & District CC) ahead of Ash Daughtrey (Out of the Saddle CC) & Adam Fowkes (TLI) with Richard Shimwell (Bolsover & District CC) & Scott Paterson (Doncaster Wheelers) in 4th & 5th places respectively.
