Limit rid­ers fight to fin­ish in top 10

Mansfield Courier - - SPORT - By JOHN EIS­NER

DEB Salatenna and Sue Hall com­bined as an ef­fec­tive duo, as they set off as the limit group in last Thurs­day’s hand­i­cap cy­cling race.

Some four min­utes later Will Grundy, Tony Mor­ris, Katie Moore, Tim Hall, Di Condie and David Bock set off in pur­suit, with the group of Tony Wil­liams, Alain Guerin, Tony Co­p­land, Jodie Batch­e­lor and Ja­nine Ap­ple­ton two min­utes fur­ther back.

Steve Flew, Chris­tine Hop­kins, Will MacDon­ald and Dave Moore made up the intermedia­te group with Cam and Fo­ley Lachal, David Heat­ley, Damian Grundy and Jock Brega mak­ing up block.

Set a tough as­sign­ment, Mitch Green­way and Kian MacK­in­non left just over a minute later as the scratch duo.

S t r a i g h t a way Gr e e n way punched hard and rode away from MacK­in­non be­fore catch­ing and rid­ing away from block.

Rid­ing well to­gether, Salatenna and Hall stayed out un­til the well sorted intermedia­te groups caught them with only three ki- lome­tres to go.

In the fi­nal sprint, Tim Hall timed it well and took out a good win with a very close bunch scrap­ping for the rest of the top 10, with Tony Co­p­land get­ting up over Batch­e­lor for sec­ond and Condie, Ap­ple­ton, Bock, Tony Wil­liams, Moore, Salatenna and Hall round­ing out the re­main­ing 10 spots.
