Ryan takes the win at the first round of the Tameside Circuit Tuesday night Crit series!
50 riders lined up for the first midweek race of the season at Tameside but the large bunch was soon being shredded with a number of strong riders making their way to the front to apply the pressure. Breaks came and went but as the final 3rd of the race approached a peloton of circa 35 riders were all together and with just under 15 laps to go another two riders tried their luck and built a small gap. At this point Ryan struck out and over the course of the next few laps he bridged to the two leaders only for the group to be brought back inside 10 laps to go. Having burnt a significant number of matches during the last move Ryan sat back in the group to try and conserve energy for what he thought would be a bunch sprint but when the bunch stalled with 4 laps to go Ryan jumped and a moments hesitation from the main pack was all he needed. Ryan put his head down and held off a charging peloton to take the teams first win or the season in style.
Well done Ryan
