Preview: ASDA STREETVELODROME SERIES ROUND 4 LOWESTOFT
Once again the ASDA StreetVelodrome Series didn't fail to deliver drama, close racing and some amazing individual stories.
The action, and drama, started with the delayed Female Final from Round 2. Jess Stone, comfortably leading going into the last lap was trying to beat Anna Glowinski by a 'Catch' when it all went wrong for the Cycleguard rider.
Crashing out as she hit the banking, gifting Anna the Gold and the win by a 'Catch'. Those are the rules!
The fall meant Jess had to sit out the rest of the action, though she is completely ok after getting checked out by the medics.
Anna went on to win gold again beating ProCook's Kelli Salone into the Silver postiion. Winter Olympic snowboarder Zoe Gillings-Brier failed to make it out of the elimination races, but local amateur rider Beth Orchard managed to battle her way to the podium and win bronze for Cycleguard.
In the Male competition Olympian Craig Maclean scored Team Velotec's first Gold after manageing to eliminate Stevenage Gold medalist Super Mario Presi early in the competition. Craig went on to beat Cycleguard's Jack Ravenscroft into Silver and Patrick Robinson, guest riding for Quella, had to settle for Bronze.
In the ASDA StreetVelodrome Kids Series Team Sharks continue to dominate with 3 wins to Team Tigers 1. Giving them an 8 point lead going into Round 3 in Lowestoft.
In the senior competition Quella extend their lead in medal table with 3 golds, 2 Silvers and 1 Bronze to Cycleguard's 1 Gold, 2 Silvers and 3 Bronzes. In 3rd is ProCook with 1 Gold, 2 Silvers and 1 Bronze. Team Velotec leapfrog from 6th to 4th thanks to Craig's Gold medal. Quella are certainly not safe at the top. Can they defend their lead or will the others come out fighting on the streets of Lowestoft?
