The largest-ever field for a Peel District Cy­cling Club Sat­ur­day race turned out at the week­end, with more than 135 rid­ers on the start line at Ca­sua­r­ina.

With most of the A and Bgrade women choos­ing to race in B and C mixed grades, two rid­ers in the ad­vanced women’s race started with the women’s devel­op­ment race.

The pair pro­vided ad­vice for the first two laps to in­ex­pe­ri­enced rid­ers, be­fore tak­ing off to race their own race for another four laps of the 8.7km course, with Adelia Neeth­ling out­sprint­ing Kirsty Turner to win the ad­vanced women’s race.

The women’s devel­op­ment race stayed together for 31⁄ laps be­fore a cou­ple of at­tacks on the fi­nal lap saw the group splin­ter and Sally Carter take the win nar­rowly from Diane Humphrey, with Jodie Wood chas­ing the pair home in third place.

Next Sun­day sees the West Coast Mas­ters race at Dog Hill, while Peel District Cy­cling Club’s next race is at Dog Hill on Sat­ur­day, July 13.
