Claes’ Class breaks the R3R hearts in a stunning finish

NEXT RACE IN TWO WEEKS’ TIME ON 26th APRIL AT 8.30pm UK TIME ENTER HERE

A stunning finish, great team racing from R3R we had a new Ladies League winner and we loved the sprint for last place … what a delight, and it’s only Race One of West London VR.

The series has another 12 contests to dispute, but R3R showed some great team riding in race one and came within a whisper of getting first and second place before Wouter Claes incredible finish took the win. An elite group broke away early on and over time became a group of around 20 riders. this dwindled to six in the last laps with a secondary group sprinting for top twenty places. Unusually, less groups formed behind and many riders finished solo … but the battle for 62nd was just as exciting as the battle for first, just as we like it

Congratulations to Shannon van de Velde on winning the Ladies Race with Maria Witzke second
