Simon Brooks wins Apres series round 6

In the main event of the day it was Simon Brooks who showed that he can win in a variety of ways. Repeated attacks by Steve Cottington (Cadence RT) saw him eventually stay clear of the bunch, only to be joined by St RaphaelĂ‚ new siginingĂ‚ David Billings. The duo worked well together whilst Brooks bided his time in the group.


With 20 mins to go, Brooks bridged across to Cottington who had dropped the industrious Billings and the two pressed home their advantage before Brooks hit the gas to take another fine win. Jonnie Blackman from Beckenham CC again won a bunch finish and claimed 3rd place.

In the 3rds race it was Blackman again who snatched the victory with a popular win from a big bunch finish, the raucous Beckenham travelling support raising the roof from the grandstand. David Billings (VC St. Raphael) again pushed Blackman close to claim the runner-up spot for the second week running, with Nathan Hereward of Kingston Wheelers showing promise & completing the podium.
