Event Report

Once again Senior A and B were competing together and racing started with a 3 Lap Dash with a win for Jake White, Mark McCann (BC Velo) was second and Zak White third. Jake White is currently leading the League (with 229 points) and he is also leading the Halesowen League. Then it was onto a 12 Lap Scratch with some great efforts from Zak White and Seb Bacon but then in the closing stages of the race, and with Jake White leading, Mark McCann swept down the banking to snatch a win by just 0.019 seconds, much to the delight of his young children, Poppy and Harry, watching from the crowd. Jake White took second place with Mahyar Abbott third.

The next event was a 1 Lap, Flying Start, Time Trial with three riders producing sub 32 second result: Mark McCann 31.738, Mahyar Abbott 31.873 and Zak White 31.979. After another very close finish in an Italian Pursuit where Mark McCann’s team just took the win from Jake White’s team it was time for two Keirin races. In the first Mark McCann took the wheel straight away and went on to win with the White brothers close behind, and this time Zak took second with Jake third. In the second experience played out first, with Simon Orme (Brereton Wheelers) taking the wheel, but it was Giulio Cervi over the line first with Seb Bacon second and Simon having to settle for third.

The 22 Lap Handicap race gave Lichfield City rider Jacob Gilkes his best result in the League so far. He started off with the other B rider Simon Orme and they managed to hold off the A riders to the Intermediate Sprint with Jacob taking the win and Simon second. Mark McCann was third. Then Jacob carried on with his lead and despite the best efforts of the rest of the field, all working hard to catch him, Jacob was over the line first and took the win with Giulio Cervi second, Jake White third.
