CYCLING: CYCLISTS have been out in force at Tudor Grange Circuit in recent weeks as Solihull Cycling Club hosts a new initiative named ‘No Frills Racing’.
Riders from all over the region came to take part – some were unfortunately turned away as too many riders turned up to race.
Riders from Warwick University, Dynamic Rides, and Mammoth Lifestyle Racing Team were winners on the opening evenings before Stuart Jameson from Solihull CC scooped gold in week four.
A fine sprint home – which started 150 metres before the finish line – was won by several bike lengths.
The pace was fairly quick from the start, evidenced by the number of riders who were at the back of the main group.
This pace continued throughout with a number of attacks off the front which all came to nothing as the group closed each one down – leaving the race down to the final straight.
Jameson is no stranger to podium finishes having won a Pinvin Road Race earlier in the year, but this is the first time he has tasted victory in one of the ‘No Frills’ races.
His Solihull team mate Jacob Knight finished sixth on debut.
The Tudor Grange Circuit in Solihull has been in use for some years now and has proved to be a great asset to the cycling community in the region.
The circuit is approx 850m in length and the Solihull CC youth train there on Monday, Tuesday and Thursday evenings and adults on a Wednesday.
