Race 2 Torworth Series: 8-05-08

With 2 laps remaining (10 miles), the handicap times appeared well on schedule for all the groups to come together  on the run into the line. However, the front two groups having just merged went on to record their quickest lap times to stay away and finish some 20 seconds ahead of the scratch group.

Simon Jackson (Sheffrec CC) was a clear winner in the final sprint, 2 lengths ahead of Ian Ellison (South Elmsall CC) and Peter Hennessey (Beighton Wheelers).

Race 2 Finish:

Race 3 Torworth Series: 15-05-08

The longmarker group showed their intention from the first lap with their fastest time of the series so far which they maintained throughout and, as a result, stayed ahead until just 2 miles to go.

An accelerating scratch group finally caught them and in the ensuing bunch sprint Charles Tennick (Stealth RT/Chris Last Sports Massage) was a clear winner from Marc Etches (Sheffrec CC) and Dave Furniss (Doncaster Wheelers).

Race 4 Torworth Series: 22-05-08

On a cool, breezy, sunny evening the race handicap worked well with 4 groups only merging on the final lap.

Race 4 Finish:

Race 5 Torworth Series: 29-05-08

Heavy rain throughout the race slowed the riders and the whole field came together with over 6 miles remaining. Approaching the finish Tim Rowson (J E James RT) rode clear and remained ahead to finish clear of a tightly fought sprint where Marc Etches (Sheffrec CC) finished just ahead of Chris Pritchard (Stealth RT/Chris Last Sports Massage). However, after the event the race controller/commissaire disqualified Rowson for repeatedly dangerous riding previously in the race.

Race 5 Finish:

Race 6 Torworth Series: 05-06-08

After the heavy rain of last week, the last race on the Torworth circuit saw a return to warm, sunny and calm conditions which as a result produced the quickest lap times of the series so far from all the groups except that is for the scratch group who after a fast second lap faded away to produce their slowest laps of the series so far! In front of them the other groups merged with 2 miles remaining and in a tightly fought bunch sprint, Dave Furniss (Doncaster Wheelers) won ahead of Matthew Hartley (Sheffield Sports CC) and Nigel Smith (TLI).

The NMRRL now moves onto the Harworth circuit with Marc Etches (Sheffrec CC) leading the overall series by just one point from Charles Tennick (Stealth RT/Chris Last Sports Massage).

Race 7 Harworth Series: 12-06-08

On the first race in the series on the Harworth circuit, the handicap worked well with the whole field coming together and forming an extended line as they approached the line. Unfortunately for the scratch group, this proved to be just too late to reach the front and overtake the leaders. Richard Lindsay (www.wilsoncycles.co.uk) sprinted to a 2 length victory ahead of Alex Wallis (Doncaster Wheelers) and David Beresford (Norton Wheelers).

Race 7 Finish:

Race 8 Harworth Series: 19-06-08

Windy conditions made it tough for the second race of the Harworth series. The longmarker group riding one lap less than the rest of the field was reduced to just 2 riders after their first lap but Penny Rowson (Team Chance) and Joanna Blackburn (South Elmsall CC) took full advantage of their handicap to hold off the rest of the field at the finish where Rowson just beat Blackburn by a length. The scratch group had reeled in all the other groups but a slower penultimate lap cost them dearly as they finished just 5 seconds behind the leading duo.

Race 8 Finish:

Race 9 Harworth Series: 26-06-08

A dull evening with heavy rain reduced the field to just 36 brave riders who competed over a reduced race distance of 24 miles. The three handicap groups came together with 6 miles remaining and in the bunch sprint, Dave Furniss (Doncaster Wheelers) was a clear winner with a fast closing Graham Waller (Sheffrec CC) 2nd and junior Jamie Raven (Rutland CC) 3rd. The win puts Furniss into 2nd place in the Overall Series.

Race 10 Harworth Series: 03-07-08

Windy conditions appeared to favour the scratch group which had overhauled the rest of the field with 8 miles still remaining. A long early sprint by Matthew Hartley (Sheffield Sports CC) was succesful and he crossed the line a length clear of Dave Pratt (Beighton Wheelers) and Lee Allen (Dinnington RC/Universal-Auditoria).

Race 11 Harworth Series: 10-07-08

Joanna Blackburn (South Elmsall CC) improving on previous performances, took full advantage of a reduced distance handicap to stay ahead for the whole race. Mostly with Neil Freer (www.wilsoncycles.co.uk), she eventually finished alone to win some 40 seconds ahead of the rest of a complacent field which had finally merged with 3 miles remaining.

In the sprint for 2nd place Chris Pritchard (Stealth RT/Chris Last Sports Massage) was a length ahead of Lee Allen (Dinnington RC/Universal-Auditoria) with Overall Series leader Marc Etches (Sheffrec CC) in 4th place.

Race 12 Harworth Series: 17-07-08

High winds produced difficult conditions which slowed the whole field with all the handicap groups staying apart for virtually the whole race. Only the front 2 longmarker groups merged on the final lap with Peter Wood (Sheffrec CC) an easy winner of the sprint from Jamie Raven (Rutland CC) and John Downing (Dinnington RC/Universal-Auditoria).

The NMRRL now moves onto the final series of 6 races on the Stainton circuit.

Race 13 Stainton Series: 24-07-08

Ideal conditions produced the fastest times of the whole series so far on the first race on the Stainton circuit. This benefitted the longmarker groups which merged with just over 3 miles to go and stayed ahead to contest the finish. Veteran Dave Marsh (Dinnington RC/Universal-Auditoria) was the winner in a tightly fought sprint with Doncaster Wheelers juniors Ben Last and Alex Wallis a close 2nd & 3rd.

Race 14 Stainton Series: 31-07-08

Rainy conditions reduced the field by a half and the handicap worked well with the field coming together with 4 miles remaining. Graeme Huston (Zeus CRT) tried to escape over the final run into the line but was just overtaken in the last 50 metres by the head of the fast sprinting bunch. Marc Etches (Sheffrec CC) was a clear winner from Andrew Wasteney (Beighton Wheelers) and Graham Waller (Sheffrec CC) 3rd with Huston holding onto 4th place.

Race 15 Stainton Series: 07-08-08

Race abandoned after torrential rain.

NMRRL

Race 16 Stainton Series: 14-08-08

After last week's race was abandoned just after half distance due to torrential heavy rain, much better conditions produced a fast race with the scratch group working well. With 7 miles remaining just the longmarker group remained out in front by a minute and they were caught before the final lap. Lee Allen (Dinnington RC/Universal/Auditoria) won the bunch sprint ahead of Graham Waller (Sheffrec CC) with Rob Blackburn (Newark Castle CC) in 3rd place.

With 2 races to go, Marc Etches (Sheffrec CC) has a 5 point lead in the Overall Series but with a race in hand over
his closest rivals, looks certain to retain his title.

1 Lee Allen Dinnington RC/Universal-Auditoria 23.8m in 54m 03s
2 Graham Waller Sheffrec CC

Race 17 Stainton Series: 21-08-08

Good conditions produced another fast race with the scratch group working particularly well and as a result the whole field came together with just under 3 miles to go. Dave Pratt (Beighton Wheelers) won a tightly fought bunch sprint ahead of Marc Etches (Sheffrec CC) and Lee Allen (Dinnington RC/Universal-Auditoria).

With only one race to go, Etches now has an unassailable lead in the Overall Series and thus has retained his title, but all the other final positions in the top ten are still to be determined as well as most of the category prizes which go the riders who finish outside of the first ten in the Overall Series.

The prize presentation will take place on the 25th October at the NMRRL 30th Anniversary Dinner where Malcolm Elliott (the first winner of the NMRRL) is the guest of honour.

Race 18 Stainton Series: 28-08-08

After a bright afternoon, sudden cloudy conditions reduced the final race of the 2008 North Midlands Road Race League to 20.4 miles. The handicap worked well with the whole race coming together with 2 miles remaining and in a tightly fought bunch sprint Marc Etches (Sheffrec CC), already the 2008 Series Champion, was a clear winner ahead of team mate Graham Waller with Andrew Wasteney (Beighton Wheelers) in 3rd. Waller's 2nd place moved him into 2nd place
in the Overall Series ahead of Lee Allen (Dinnington RC/Universal-Auditoria).

This year's NMRRL Prize Presentation will take place at the NMRRL 30th Anniversary Dinner to be held on the 25th October where Malcolm Elliott, the first NMRRL Champion, is the guest of honour.
