Tamworth goes Italian for a little variety

TAMWORTH Cycling Club began its  normal criterium racing with something a little different yesterday morning.

The club  held a two team Italian Pursuit at Goddard lane before the A, B and C grade criteriums.

The Italian Pursuit featured two teams of nine riders.

The teams started together, with one rider doing a complete turn of pace in front.

After every lap, that designated rider dropped out, leaving just two riders.

Fraser Ashford prevailed in a team also containing Lewis Chapman, Ray Griffin, Jack Pianta, Michael Swain, Brendan Hallford, Alan Spokes, Mark Jarvis and  Michael Jackson.

The regular racing then began, with the A and B grades riding together but having separate finishes, the B graders going for 30mins and two laps and the A graders for 30mins and two laps.

Sam Spokes won A Grade from Fraser Ashford with Lewis Chapman third.

Jack Pianta prevailed in B grade from Alan Spokes and  Michael Swain whilst Mark Jarvis won the 25min plus two lap C grade from Michael Jackson and Peter Nash.
