3rd Pickering Brook SeriesWhat a Fantastic day for the team today out at the 3rd Pickering Brook Series..
Its started off very well with Dylan Pierre-Humbert winning the 1 Lap TT with we believe Anthony Minchin finishing in the top 5.
In the 70km Road Race we had Andy Williams, Eddy Hollands, Sam Smith joining the other 2 guys. We also had Conor Sherwin racing his first A Grade Bike Race.
Sam found himself in the first dangerous move of the day, but this was brought back by lap 4 of 9. Over the next few laps groups tried to escape in which EHBS was always represented. Conor showed he was up for some fun and joined in either chasing the moves or getting in a few. Everyone took their turns in being in the breaks but it wasn't until 4 laps to go that the winning break got away with Eddy, Michael Fitzgerald from Satalist and Blake Smith from Arbitrage. With the 3 strong teams represented it was always going to be hard for the bunch to bring this one back.
Unfortunately Michael had wheel issues going into the 3 laps to go and had to drop back. This of course forced Satalist to chase but Eddy and and Blake worked well together to hold off the bunch with Eddy getting the best of Blake in the finish. Andy come home in 4th in what was a messy bunch sprint.
All in all a fantastic day for the team in what was the first massed start event we have ridden as a team with all the new guys. Very promising signs and some good times to come.
