This weekend brought some pleasant spring-like weather to Northern parts of the UK making the prospect of racing so much more attractive for our junior and youth teams.
First up on Saturday, three of the youth team (Matt Walls, Jake Beach and Reece Wood riding their Zings) raced a double at York in the 45 minute youth circuit race.
A few of the riders tried to get away early in the race but it took around 20 minutes before the decisive break was formed with four strong riders working together, one of them being Matt Walls. With Matt up the road, Jake and Reece patrolled the chasing peloton, covering every move and showing some maturity in team racing. As the race entered the final lap, Robert Gray attacked in the back straight and took a deserved win. Matt tried to reel Robert back in, solo, but left it late to come home in 2nd place.
