EY Road Race League – Event #1 report

The first event at Sproatley was very cold and very wet. The race was shortened by a lap due to the weather and the lack of daylight but it was the right decision.

Most HTRC riders were marshalling this event and were generally pleased not to have raced it in those conditions.

Well done to Danny Posnett who managed to get clear of the field and ride a full lap on his own to take the win.

There were many riders out of the back of the race, some may have been in the wrong group, or the time gaps were not big enough. Hopefully this was adjusted for the following event at Little Weighton.

Result as follows:
