On Saturday 28th March, Josh Giddings and Jack Brough rode the U12 race promoted by the Lichfield CC at the Curborough circuit. The race was run in wet and very windy conditions, a fast start seen about 8 riders break clear of the rest, Jack and Josh along with with local Lichfield rider Ben Askey continued to try and break away many times but the breaks didn’t go so it all came down to a sprint finish with a Josh taking the win by several lengths over Ben Askey and Jack coming in 5th another great ride from them.
Earlier in the day Ben Marsh contested the U10 races he was always well placed but missed the move of two riders breaking clear, Ben chased along with two non working riders after several attacks he distanced them with 2 1/2 laps still to go and put in a really strong and valiant attempt to bridge to the front riders but having to eventually settle for a well deserved 3rd place.
Consistent results from these riders see them currently within the UK top 20 for their age group.
This week sees Ben Marsh, Sam Marsh and Josh Giddings contest the York circuit races on a Good Friday.
