Ives Wins Round 2

Ben Ives (We Love Mountains) sprinted to victory in round 2 of Road Race League from a elite group of 4 riders after 4 laps of the Little Weighton circuit.

Held in dry but windy conditions on the tough Little Weighton circuit the 5 groups started to break up early in the race. The front 3 groups managed to hold off group 4 and 5 until approaching the bell. Going out on the last lap, a break of 4 riders Ben Ives, Chris Daddy (SquadraRT) , Steve Guymer (Active CP) and Dave Shackleton (Wilson Wheels) opened a gap which they would increase to 45 seconds by the line.

In the sprint for the victory Ives managed to hold off Shackleton by half a wheel with Daddy 3rd and Guymer 4th.

They were followed home by a bunch of around 20 riders with Nathan Wilson claiming 5th and Martin Cockerill 6th and best of the early starters.

The series now moves to Walkington and round 3 with 4 riders equal on 10 points at the top – Ben Ives, round 1 winner Mark Symons and the only 2 riders to score points in both rounds Martin Cockerill and Mark Robinson.
