SARGEANT’S HOME WIN HOPES DASHED

Harefield Gazette - - FRONT PAGE -

JONNY SARGEANT’S hopes of rev­el­ling in home ad­van­tage were dashed at Hilling­don on Satur­day.

It was the last of West Dray­ton MBC’s three races at the cir­cuit – all of them at­tract­ing full fields of 80 rid­ers for the se­niors plus op­por­tu­ni­ties for ages down to un­der-eights.

Sargeant was the club’s sole rep­re­sen­ta­tive on Satur­day and was lead­ing the big bunch un­til 200 me­tres from the line de­spite ef­forts to split the field. But in sight of the line he faded and came in third.

Five Hilling­don rid­ers who went to France for the 50km sportive in Boulogne were re­warded by fast times.
