Event Report

Wolverhampton Wheelers Track League Wednesday 20th June 2018

Racing started with a 12 Lap Dash with both Senior A and B racing together before separating but then competing together again at the end of the evening for the Marymoor Crawl and the 22 Lap Handicap. The Dash saw a win for Matty Lewis with George Beck (Bikestrong KTM) taking second place on his first appearance in the League. First B rider was Grace Lister in fourth place.

The Win and Out events entertained the crowd and in the B race Mahyar Abbott (in his first year racing the League) saw his chance and took the first sprint taking first place. Simon Orme took the second lap with Grace Lister close behind him. Grace went on to take the third lap with Ollie Baker taking fourth, Amelia Southall fifth and Will farmer sixth. The A race saw another win for Matty Lewis with Callum Lister (Cotswold Velorijden) also on his debut appearance, taking the win on the second lap. A close sprint for third place saw Jake White just ahead of Giulio Cervi with Giulio eventually taking fourth and Seb Bacon collecting fifth place unopposed.

Will Perry took a decisive lead at the beginning of the Senior B Unknown Distance but as the race progressed Grace Lister took control hotly pursued by Zak White. Grace took the win with Zak second and Ollie Baker third. The Senior A event proved to be a shorter race and it was Seb Bacon who was able to take full advantage with a clear win over Matty Lewis who took second with Jake White third. Matty Lewis took the Marymoor Crawl with George Beck second and Mahyar Abbott third and then it was onto the final event of the evening: the 22 Lap Handicap. At first it looked as though the B riders would be able to hold off the A riders but they were caught with thirteen laps to go with Matty Lewis wining the Intermediate Sprint followed by Callum Lister in second with B rider Grace Lister third. With eight laps remaining Matty Lewis made his own break and by the time there were three laps left he had put a full half lap between himself and the next rider. So it was another win for Matty and another second place for Callum Lister with Giulio Cervi third over the line.
