Whitelake Results

The Whitelake Tor Road Race, once again proved to be as good as the previous editions, if not better! 79 of the full field of 80 riders signed on for the 50 mile race on the roads around Somerton. The bunch rolled out from the Overt Locke Ltd to a crowd of curious on lookers. It was not long after the neutralised section that a rider from Tri UK was on the attack and was  soon to be be joined by another, by the end of the second lap the partnership had chiselled out nearly a minutes lead. However as quickly as the gap formed it was soon to be dissolved by the chasing peloton and it was all back as one. For the next few laps the pace was continually high meaning no escapees, but the size of the main peloton had started to dwindle. With only a lap to go a group of 7 riders had put day light between themselves and the rest of the charging group lead by Yeovil CC's James Lewis. 4 of the 7 had stayed away to contest the final gallop with the St Austell Wheelers CC rider Joe Healey putting several bike lengths clear of fellow break away companions Andrew Wiley (University of Manchester CC) an Owen Lewis (VC Venta)

Tom Hawkins RR

This Sunday (20/05/18) Tor has a great representation in one of the most prestigious Regional A races, the Tom Hawkins RR. The Exeter Wheelers promotion is run a course near Wellington.

The varying terrain and road surfaces makes a challenging race, also a great race to watch. A competitive field makes it a difficult to chose a winner, though Tor should be in the mix and in the hunt for the top spot.

Good luck to all the Tor riders!
