Race Report Baines Racing NVRT race 9th. March  2014

 

One of the first races of the 2014 season. For the first time at the start of the season I had to withdraw from the event due to a training accident a few weeks ago and was in no fit state to compete, but decided to travel down to the event with Belper clubmate Bill Cotton and do a few miles round the course in observational mode. ‘Sods’ law dictated that the weather would be good and, by god, it was brilliant, for the first time riding this course I’ve never seen such good conditions in early March. The event was run as two races, ABC and DEFG

On arrival at the friendly A5 Rangers clubroom I was pleased to see many of my adversaries from last year and had plenty of time for swapping stories. I got changed into fewer clothes than of late and rode out to the course suffering with my state of fitness, so I was pleased to be riding steadily today.

I opted to ride round the course in the opposite direction to the race when the it started and met up with the DEFG race at the top of the Maidford climb: already Bob Downs had launched an attack from the bunch. I rode on and further round the course a small group of 6 had escaped with a good gap over 3 chasers just in front of the bunch. The driving force in this break appeared to be Bob Downs and John French and it soon became well established gaining around 2 minutes. There was no way this was going to be pulled in. This remained  the status quo until with about just under two laps to go Bob and John left the other 4 riders and the impetus went out of this group who nevertheless stayed clear of the bunch. Coming into the final 200 metres Bob easily won the sprint from John and I’m afraid I missed the 3rd place rider, but bringing in the Bunch Terry Devine emerged to win the Bunch sprint.

Talking with Bill Cotton and Barry Jones later, it was evident that I would have been out of the back door early on, as both said it was extremely hard right from the off. But having said that, I was disappointed to be watching instead of riding.

For further information I hope to be out on the Fleche Waltonne event next weekend and will  try to make a better report than this

I apologise for missing out on many names,  and also of course the ABC event the riders with whom I’m not familiar except to say that Phil Rayner was looking good. I’ve already informed Phil I’ll not be riding his event, but I’m keeping my fingers crossed for the Pinvin in three weeks

 

Congratulations to Geoff Baines and Don Parry for a very successful race and to all the marshals round the course who did an excellent job of keeping the race accident free.
