GWR Floodlit Series Round 2

Lewis heads the field

Round 2 of GWR Team’s Winter, floodlit Cyclo cross series had another record entry of 48 riders signing on for a surprisingly fast and dry race that was held in windy conditions at Supermarine Rugby ground. With seven events of the ten race series counting for the overall prize of a holiday to Joyriders in Spain, riders were keen to get a strong result in the 2nd round. So it was all guns blazing into the first woodland section. With round 1 winner Matt Denby not making the trip south this week, it was left to 2nd place Dan Lewis and 3rd placed Paul Lloyd to try to make headway at the top of the table and assume the overall lead. Leading the field into the first of the woodland sections was Lewis, leading the field for two laps. Lloyd remained in contact and took the lead on lap three, only to relinquish it on lap 6 to Lewis who went on to take the victory in the 13 lap race.
