John Boote Memorial Senior Road Race 13/6/2010

An excellent race today – exciting to watch, the weather held up well and everyone got back safely. Graham had a full entry of 60 plus ten reserves, and lots of people who turned up on the day in the hope of an entry on the line, so there was a full field, of mostly 2nd and 3rd cat riders. A Crewe rider tried to go off on his own and survived for a couple of laps before being caught – then a well organised breakaway of 16 or so created an unassailable gap – we marshals were delighted to see that Dave McKay made it into this group. In the meantime Kev, Craig and Nick were safely in the main bunch, although Nick succumbed to cramp towards the end of the race. The breakaway group split up in the last few laps and the race was won by Dave Hitchen from New Brighton (he was second last year apparently) – Dave got into the first 20 but I’m not sure of his exact position – then Craig just beat Kev on the line, as they finished along with the remnants of the bunch.
Great organisation as usual from Graham, Alan Silver and Gary, with lots of support from WVCC members. There’s a grumpy letter in Cycling Weekly this week, that says riders nowadays won’t take on organising or marshalling races – this certainly doesn’t seem to apply to WVCC, where everyone seems happy to accept this occasional (and enjoyable) responsibility.
