The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

CY­CLING: Eye pro­fes­sional Steve Lampier ad­mit­ted last night’s open­ing race of the Hal­fords Tour Se­ries was ‘a bap­tism of fire’.

Lampier (right), who won the sprints ti­tle in last year’s event, rode solidly for 23rd po­si­tion in last night’s opener at Kirk­caldy in Fire.

He said: “It was a re­ally hard race but I fin­ished in the top 25 so it’s on­wards and up­wards now.”

Lampier, who helped his IG Sigma team to sev­enth place in a race won by Scott­th­waites, now trav­els to Durham for to­mor­row’s sec­ond leg of the­tour, which comes to Peter­bor­ough on May 29.
