Round 5 - South East Regional Road Race

Saturday 18th May proved to be a warm if overcast day for the South East Regional Road Race on the Kirdfold circuit in Sussex. With a large field of 54 riders turning out for the race, it promised to be an interesting race. 

The bunch stayed together for most of the race with surges here and there shaking off a few unlucky riders at the back. When the final push for the finish came Lydia Boylan (Team CTC), determined to keep her SE Champs jersey, was first over the line. Karla Boddy (MG Maxifuel) was second and Alexie Shaw (Les Filles RT) was third. 

Unfortunately a crash further back as the bunch geared up for the last few hundred metres brought down a number of riders. Hopefully everyone's bruises are healing and they'll be back for more.
