Event Report

For Joe Guy

Tonight's racing was held in memory of Joe Guy, including the 21 lap handicapped "Race for Joe".

Youth riders Oliver Alldritt and Ray Lovell took an early lead in the race and held on to take the first two places in the intermediate sprint after 11 laps with Joe's brother, Craig Guy, heading the A league riders to take 3rd place.

In the closing stages of the race, Tom White, himself still a youth rider, attacked the A group riders and overtook Oliver and Ray to build up almost half a lap lead which he kept to the finish. Ray and Oliver were caught by the hard chasing group of A league riders in the last couple of laps but held on to them to take 6th and 7th place. Mark McCann and Craig Guy finished 2nd and 3rd behind the winner, Tom.

Perhaps fittingly, some excellent handicapping from our commissaire Mark Fardon, and some outstanding racing from the youth riders proved Fausto Coppi wrong for once as age and treachery failed to overcome youth and skill.

The trophy was presented to Tom by Joe's father Steve, and his older brother Craig. You can see pictures of the presentation here

We would like to thank Joe's family, our organiser Shaun Mason, commissaire Mark Fardon and all the volunteers who helped make the evening's racing so successful.
