Guernsey VC – Weekend Round Up

Wednesday’s Flyers Junior MTB race league once again saw familiar faces on the podium at Delancey Park, with Dan Clark and Chay Kennedy-Cook proving almost inseparable. With less than a second between them in both the evening’s two 5-lap races, it was Dan who proved to have the better sprint finish to pip Chay on the line twice, with Charlie Tourtel picking up third in both races.

Sunday’s 5-lap 85km road race on the Vazon Circuit was a close affair, although it required an effective restart after 4km as the race was halted by a herd of cows blocking the road as they were moved back into their field following their morning milking. Solo attacks from youngster Josh Saunders on lap 2 and the experienced James Roe on lap 4 were quickly reeled in by the bunch in warm conditions. The pace eased on the final lap as everyone awaited the inevitable sprint finish which was won by Matt Osborn (feature pic) from Phil Touzeau thanks to a long range effort, whilst Mike Serafin held off the bunch to take third.
