Hard day at the office with the final round of the Winter in the Park series run by Finish line events.
Harrison competed in this series and started as an under 10s and moved to the under 12s after Christmas. Today was defiantly winter in the Park with Essex full of snow this morning it looked doubtful that H would race. After a few phones calls race on!! Kent had escaped the early white stuff.
Thanks to Chris Bully for picking team Powell up today. We arrived in plenty of time. Setup the LVYCC camp in the normal space however the easterly wind soon changed our mind.
Race started with the under 16s off first followed by the under 12s then the 14s.
In about the first quarter of a lap the pace stepped up with a small group braking away from the main group. Harrison was away with Aron Freeman and an unknown rider. The three stuck together for 3 laps or so the snow started to fall and with that Harrison found the pace too quick and fell back to leave him having a hard solo ride. Aron F and the other rider were left in contention for 1st and 2nd place. With one lap to go Aron broke clear and made his win look easy.
Harrison still out on his own with the early work he had done to secure him 3rd place, LVYCC teammate Aaron Stone was unlucky not to secure 4th place with a sterling ride but settled for 5th after he lost the final climb.
Other LVYCC results were
Lewis B 2nd
Callum B 5th
Mathew Sheppard 6th
well done team LV another demonstration on how to win points for the club.
