Clayton Vale ‘Cross – 17 November – Results and Photos

giles drakeGiles Drake (Herbalife / LeisureLakes, pictured) was back to his winning ways at a wind-free and mild Clayton Vale on Sunday.  Whilst last week’s winner Dylan Kerfoot-Robson was away winning his first National Trophy event, Drake was initially behind Grant Ferguson (Superior Brentjens) and Martin Woffindin (Cyclesport Pendle) for the first two laps but made his move and went out to lead the race.

Ferguson, who was using a mountain bike, couldn’t keep pace with Drake and as the race wore on, the lead grew. Despite his bike dragging, Ferguson put in a solid performance to finish second, around 20 seconds behind Drake. Woffindin held on for third spot.

Giles Drake said after the race: “I got a good lead but Grant was on a mountain bike, I think it started to drag a bit as the race went on. I didn’t take too many risks, just made sure I stayed away from the rest of them.

“The course is slightly varied from last year, there are a few extra loops – it was all pretty solid. I’m in good form and the legs are good. I was at the Inter-Areas last week and I was just a few seconds behind Adam Martin so I’m going well. I’m very happy.

Roy Davies (Team Elite) won the veteran race and first woman was Becky Preece (Contessa Scott). The youth race was won by Matthew Walls (Velocity W40) and the top girl was Kim Baptista (Mid Lancs BMX).   Leading the Under 12s home were Tyler Koch (Bolton Hot Wheels) and Eve Barrow (Salt Ayre Cog Set). The Under 10 girls was won by Evelina Black (Bolton Hot Wheels) and the winning boy was Scott Fisher (Furness Future Flyers). In the same race, the U8s were won by Traydon Jarrett (Blackpool Youth) and Imogen Peatfield (Bolton Hot Wheels). Well done to all !
