Greg Parker (VC ST Raphael/Waites Contracts) wins the Antelope RT 10 at a windy Thruxton Motor circuit.
"The race went really well apart from a warm up crash when my rollers collapsed! I have made quite a few changes to equipment in the last few weeks so didn't really know how those would work out but bike felt really good and the windy conditions suited me." commented Parker.

Given the recent poor weather, the sun was a welcome visitor and the temperatures were up to 14 deg C. However there was a freshening westerly wind which helped the riders up Portsdown Hill but it hampered them on the return leg.
