Birkenhead Park Circuit Races

Another sun drenched day for the Birkenhead Park Bike Factory Circuit Races. The Century had impressive strength in numbers for the E/1/2/3/4 handicap with 9 riders on the start line and were very active throughout the race. Almost every move contained a black and white jersey or was being pulled back by them.

On a fast course however, it was not a day for the breakaway. As the Elite, first and second cat riders caught with 5 laps to go (and our own Geraint Parry suffers an untimely puncture) the pace ramped up even higher, including a 2.0 mile lap at almost 29 mph with the whole bunch strung out. As nothing was staying away at that pace it came down to a bunch kick won by Oscar Williamson of Marsh Tracks Racing Team, with Ian Kendall the best placed Centurian in 17th.
