Kent Cyclopark Summer Series Round 5
Thu 17 May 2018
Hugo Evans was at race no.5 of this popular series at the Cyclopark on a breezy Thursday evening.
Cyclopark Gravesend, 3/4 category criterium.
From the gun 2 riders immediately broke away from the bunch, after a couple of laps Hugo bridged across to the leading duo followed a lap later by two others. With the 5 riders quickly realising they were the strongest in the race they started working together to stay away,once they were out of sight of the bunch they rode through and off for the next 50 minutes or so.
As the 5 breakaways were onto the last lap Hugo took 2nd wheel and approaching the finish line he opened his sprint to pass the leading rider only to get jumped by the 3 behind who came off his wheel at the last moment. In his first ever successful race long breakaway he was pleased to finish in 4th place for another 6 BC points.
