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.
