Shutt Ridley RT Climb to Third in Central Region Ranking with Another Week of Big Points Scoring.

Crit Racing Criterium Milton Keynes Bowl RaceReport Racing

Starting with the weekly Milton Keynes Bowl series Shutt sent another big team. Jered Allcock and Gareth Harvey raced the Eilte category with Harvey taking 4 points for 6th place and Allcock again just outside the points in 16th. Luke Souter also just missed out on points as he came 16th in the third category race.
Julia Chatterton also did well sprinting to 2nd in the ladies race to bring home 8 more points for the team.

The fourth category race featured Shut Ridley RT riders Ed Dixon and Simon Clarke. This was a close fought race with no-one being allowed and space at all away from the bunch. A full 40mins into a 45min race Ed Dixon engaged the afterburners and powered away from the bunch, he hovered at 10s clear for a couple of laps before the field sat up and allowed Dixon to ride clear and solo in for the win.

Clarke made the most of the opportunity too and sprinted in for a Shutt Ridley RT 1-2 on the day, 18 more points for the team and a mega performance from the cat 4 racers.

Jered Allcock

Elsewhere Shutt veteran and Le Mans race car driver Peter Dumbreck joined Phil O'Connor in the National Veterans Road Race Championships. Unfortunately neither rider placed in a fast and tactical race.

Luke Souter, Jered Allcock and Leon O'Rourke all fought hard at the Wyre Forest Race but again no points as all three missed the race winning break-away.
Allcock also raced the Curborough Road Race but this time was able to emerge with 2 points after being boxed out of the sprint for podium places. Allcock held his sprint to take 8th.

Justin Belcher and James Beechey took on the Berkhamstead Castle crits. Beechey rolled in 18th but Belcher positioned himself well and took another 6 points for the team with a good 5th place performance.

Finally Maxine Filby secured an invite to the National Series round of the Tour of The Reservoir. Featured on Eurosport TV, Filby held the main group in both stages until the final climb where the decisive moves were made. Filby on the day couldn't respond the the power the full-time pro rider could produce but came in with the bunch on both days. An epic performance for Filby who continues to impress at a National level.
