EY Road Race League #2 – Who’s the Daddy?

Thank you all for a great race at Little Weighton on Thursday 8 May. 39 riders signed on and 10 riders marshaled or drove. The weather wasn’t good – dark, drizzly rain but there was very little wind.

The race started with three evenly-sized handicapped groups and by the third lap the scratch group had caught the other two groups. a few riders suffered punctures and many riders could not match the pace of the scratch group.

Chris Daddy broke clear from the lead group on the final lap, having a good 50 metre gap before the sprint. Chris had enough time to give a full winners salute and crossed the line 10 metres clear of Jacob Trotter taking the bunch sprint, third was last years league winner Nathan Wilson. Around half the starters completed the race.

Result from East Yorkshire Road Race League event #2 is as follows:


1st – Chris Daddy (Squadra RT)

2nd – Jacob Trotter (Squadra RT)

3rd – Nathan Wilson (Wilsons Wheels RT)

4th – Dave Shackleton (Squadra RT)
