LVRC King of the Bowl Race 9

Milton Keynes, July 23, 2002

Freeman back from hols to win

By Dick Selley (North Bucks RC)

The ninth race in the summer long veterans road race series attracted the smallest turnout for some weeks. With many riders and there families away on holiday it was a returning 'holidaymaker' that took the honours on a dull overcast evening at the Milton Keynes Bowl.

Paul Freeman (Alpha RC-Phil Corley Cycles) continued his team's domination of the series with an uncontested win from his breakaway companion Kevin Farmer (Team Milton Keynes) a lone winner two weeks ago, but unable to match Freeman in a sprint. Freeman, who had returned from a three week training camp in France at the end of last week, put his training to good use to with his second win in the series to consolidate his second place in the overall classification. Farmer, with one win to his name, moves up to third place overall.

Bob Richards (Solihull CC) was unable to drop Murray Kirton (A5 Rangers CC) one of his usual sparring partners and had to win a close fought sprint for victory in the older category race. Richards looks assured of the overall series title from Kirton who looks like securing second place overall fromDave Benger (Aylesbury CC) a non starter last night after his bronze medal ride in the BCF Veterans National Road Race last wekend.

Another medalist from those championships, Keir Maris (KTM Racing), silver medalist in the 40+ age group, found his attempts to join the Freeman-Farmer combine thwarted by a strong display of team riding from the resurgent Alpha RC-Phil Corley Cycles team. Don Parry (Nene Valley RT) the winner of the opening race in the series, was another who was frustrated by the numerical strength of the Alpha RC-Phil Corley Cycles team. However, Jermey Burke (Stevenage CTC) did manage to slip away near the end 'policed' by Ian Cooper (Alpha RC-Phil Corley Cycles) who jumped around Burke with 200 metres to go to secure third place.
