The cat’s whiskers …. that cat Wouter’s Knocking out wins, whilst Ellen Lockett’s cat knocked out the wires …. watch the action here:

Another great Sprint from Wouter Claes sees him extend his lead in series 5. Ellen Lockett powered home as Ladies League winner, from Twickenham CC’s Gail Robinson, despite having to get off and plug back in after her cat managed to unplug her ….. and you thought it was stray dogs at the roadside that disrupted Grand Tours! Vive Le Tour de Cyberspace! Watch the highlights on YouTube above.

Despite being a largely downhill race we expected pressure from the front of the peleton with small attacks on the minor ramps near the finish. A strongly fought last few kilometres kept us guessing until the last few metres.

A special mention to Gordon Jackson, a techanical drop out, but he soldiered on and completed the race, bravo sir!
