Race 2 Torworth 10/05/2018

The 2018 NMRRL finally started at Torworth after the late cancellation of the first races last week due to roadworks. This week was the turn of Groups B & C in mild and calm conditions.

The Group B race saw few attacks with only John Hind, Craig Preece (both Bolsover & District CC) & Chris Last (Velo 365) opening up a small gap at the end of the first of the 7 laps, then Phil English (TLI) & Edward Fisher (TLI) gaining a few seconds with 3 laps to go and finally Rob Copeland (Sheffrec CC) attacking at the bell, all being brought back by the bunch.
At the finish, the bunch sprint was won by Copeland ahead of Darren Johnson-Yates (TLI) & English, with Rob Blackburn (8Point8 Group) & Michael Newton (Barnsley Road Club) rounding off the top five.

The Group C race was even less eventful with only one breakaway of any note, when Chris Green (TLI) opened up a gap with 3 laps to go. The inevitable bunch sprint was clearly won by Kieran Smith (Bolsover & District CC) ahead of Ash Daughtrey (Out of the Saddle CC) & Adam Fowkes (TLI) with Richard Shimwell (Bolsover & District CC) & Scott Paterson (Doncaster Wheelers) in 4th & 5th places respectively.

Race 3 Torworth 17/05/2018

The 2nd race of the 2018 NMRRL was held in cool, blustery conditions on the Dinnington circuit. This week was the turn of Groups A & B.

The Group A race saw lots of action from the start with a breakaway consisting of defending NMRRL Champion Robert Mitchell & Dan Stephenson (both Out of the Saddle CC), Dean Watson (Andy Moore Autocentres Racing), Steven Bunting (Rutland CC), James Allen & Andrew Whiteley (both Sheffrec CC) & Jack Ward (Sharrow CC) opening up a 15 second lead by the end of the 2nd of the 6 laps. With all the riders working well together, the breakaway quickly established itself, increasing their lead to 40 seconds by half distance and to over a minute with 2 laps to go. At the bell, with the gap now 1 minute and 23 seconds, it was clear the bunch weren't going to bring them back.

Whiteley proved to be the strongest at the finish, taking a clear win over Watson with Allen taking 3rd place ahead of Stephenson & Mitchell, with Bunting in 6th & Ward in 7th. Aaron Chambers Smith (Andy Moore Autocentres Racing) easily won the bunch sprint for 8th place with Gavin Alcock (7 Hills CC) & Jacob Feetham (Geared Up Cycles/CN Cycles RT) rounding off the top ten.

Once again, the Group B race saw few attacks with only David Morrison (7 Hills CC) & Luke Porter (Sheffrec CC) opening up a 12 second gap at half distance but being brought back by the bunch by the end of the following lap. At the finish, a closely fought bunch sprint was won by Phil English (TLI) ahead of Stuart Bolton (Sheffrec CC) & Martin Nelson (Out of the Saddle CC) with Chris Harbon (Doncaster Wheelers) & Edward Fisher (TLI) in 4th & 5th places respectively.

After 2 races, English has a clear lead in the Group B Overall Standings ahead of Rob Blackburn (8Point8 Group) & Michael Newton (Barnsley Road Club) in joint second with last week's winner Rob Copeland (Sheffrec CC) dropping down to 4th.

Race 4 Serlby 24/05/2018

The 3rd race of the 2018 NMRRL was held in warm, sunny conditions on the Serlby circuit. This week was the turn of Groups B & C.

The Group B race saw several breakaway attempts over the opening half of the race but each time the bunch quickly brought them back. Finally, with 2 of the 6 laps remaining, the duo of Chris Last (Velo 365) & James Mellor (7 Hills CC) opened up a 12 second gap. At the bell, Mellor was alone but had increased his lead to 19 seconds. Over the closing lap, Mellor was able to maintain his advantage to take a well deserved win with Jack Rowland (Harworth & District CC) easily winning the bunch sprint for 2nd, several lengths clear of Edward Fisher (TLI) in 3rd with the Doncaster Wheelers pair of Ian Evans & Jason Cross in 4th & 5th places respectively.

After 3 races, Phil English (TLI) still leads the Group B Overall Standings with Fisher moving into 2nd place with Rob Blackburn (8Point8 Group RT) in 3rd.

The Group C race had little in the way of attacks with only Andy Mills (Out of the Saddle CC) gaining a small advantage at the end of the 2nd lap and Andrew Clarkson (TLI) opening up a small gap at the bell. Once again, a bunch sprint seemed inevitable and it was Kieran Smith (Bolsover & District CC) who was a clear winner, taking his 2nd successive Group C win, ahead of Adam Fowkes (TLI) in 2nd, Scott dawson (Worrall Wheelers) in 3rd, with Richard Shimwell (Bolsover & District CC) & Nigel Gore (Worrall Wheelers) rounding out the top 5.

After 2 races, Smith has a clear lead in the Group C Overall Standings with Fowkes in 2nd place & Shimwell moving into 3rd after two successive 4th places.

Race 6 Torworth 31/05/2018

The 5th race of the 2018 NMRRL was held in warm, sunny conditions over 7 laps of the Torworth circuit. This week was the turn of Groups B & C.

The Group B race stayed together for the opening 2 laps, then on the 3rd lap, Edward Fisher (TLI) & Karl Wooffindin (Out of the Saddle CC) opened up a gap which immediately sprung the bunch into action bringing them back relatively quickly. With 3 laps to go, Chris Green (TLI) & Luke Porter (Sheffrec CC) gained a few seconds, but again, their advantage didn't last and with 2 laps to go the race was heading towards a bunch sprint. However, on the final lap, Michael Newton (Barnsley Road Club) attacked coming into the finish and just held off the bunch to take the win ahead of Chris Harbon (Doncaster Wheelers) in 2nd & Rob Blackburn (8Point8 Group) in 3rd with David Morrison (7 Hills CC) & Jack Rowland (Harworth & District CC) rounding off the top five.

After 4 races, Blackburn is the new leader in the Overall Group B standings with Newton moving into 2nd place & Harbon in 3rd, but the top placings are getting tighter with 14 points covering the top 8 places.

The Group C race saw little action until the end of the 2nd lap when Ash Daughtrey (Out of the Saddle CC) gained a few seconds but was quickly brought back by the bunch. A lap later and it was a trio of Joe Woodhouse (Birdwell Wheelers), Scott Paterson (Doncaster Wheelers) & Andy Mills (Out of the Saddle CC) who opened up a small advantage, but once again, their lead didn't last and the race came back together and it stayed that way over the closing 3 laps.

At the the finish, the bunch sprint was easily won by Kieran Smith (Bolsover & District CC) for his 3rd Group C win of the year ahead of Daughtrey in 2nd & Nigel Gore (Worrall Wheelers) in 3rd with Scott Dawson (Worrall Wheelers) & Adam Fowkes (TLI) taking 4th & 5th respectively.

After 4 races, Smith has retaken the lead in the Overall Group C Standings with previous leader, Fowkes now in 2nd & Gore in 3rd.

Race 7 Serlby 14/06/2018

The 6th race of the 2018 NMRRL was held in warm, blustery conditions over 6 laps of the Serlby circuit. This week was the turn of Groups A & C.

The Group A race was run off at a fast pace despite the windy conditions. At the end of the 1st lap, Dan & Jack Stephenson (both Out of the Saddle CC) opened up a small gap, but the bunch soon brought them back. At half distance, Harry Buxton (Andy Moore Autocentres Racing) held a small advantage over Ben Last (Clay Cross RT) with Group A leader, Andrew Whiteley (Sheffrec CC) close behind but the bunch didn't give them much leeway. It was with 2 laps to go that a breakaway finally established itself with Dan Stephenson, Rob Mitchell (Out of the Saddle CC) & Dean Watson (Andy Moore Autocentres Racing) opening up a 25 second lead and by the bell, they had increased their advantage to 55 seconds. Coming into the finish, Stephenson dropped off the pace leaving Mitchell & Watson to fight out a close finish with Watson prevailing to take his first win of the NMRRL. Stephenson still had plenty of time in hand to take 3rd and Jack Stephenson won the bunch sprint for 4th ahead of Aaron Chambers Smith & Stephen Paterson (both Andy Moore Autocentres Racing).

After 3 races, Watson's win took him into the lead of the Group A Overall Standings ahead of Whiteley with Dan Stephenson moving into 3rd place.

The Group C race saw little action over the opening 2 laps with only Sian Randall (Team Jadan/Weldtite) opening up a small gap at the end of the 1st lap. On the 3rd lap, the duo of Ash Daughtrey (Out of the Saddle CC) & Nigel Gore (Worrall Wheelers) attacked, opening up a 25 second lead over the bunch. With 2 laps to go, Daughtrey was now on his own with his advantage down to 20 seconds on the bunch. At the bell, Daughtrey was still riding strongly, 10 seconds ahead of Rob Walker (Worrall Wheelers) with the bunch still at 20 seconds. Unfortunately for Daughtrey, after being at the front for half of the race, he finally paid for his efforts being overhauled in the closing few miles.

At the the finish, the bunch sprint was, once again, easily won by Kieran Smith (Bolsover & District CC) for his 4th Group C win of the year, several lengths ahead of Jason Talbot (Harworth & District CC) with Scott Dawson (Worrall Wheelers) in 3rd and Adam Fowkes (TLI) & Garry Hill (Dinnington RC) rounding off the top 5.

After 5 races, Smith has increased his lead in the Overall Group C Standings with Fowkes consolidating 2nd & Gore just retaining 3rd, after also paying for his earlier effort.
