Women's Team Race Series

 

A small field of just 35 riders lined up to face the 55km of the always difficult Darley Moor circuit the penultimate round of the Women's Team Race Series  on Saturday 28th August, organised by Arthur Gamble and his Ashfield RC team. The final round of the 2010 series will be at Coalville on 19th September 2010.

There was a fast pace from the start, with the first break going after just 6km when Alice Barnes  (Motorpoint) and Emily Bagnall (Surrey League) span off the front. Although that was short lived, Emily was to be involved in several such breaks and was the most active rider of the day. 

 

 

With 13km covered Iona Sewell (Squadra Donne/Shutt VR/Bikefood) attacked but was also caught. A few km later and Sarah Byrne (Team Wannabies) attacked and managed to hold for a full three laps until again she was brought back by the group.

 

 

With three Laps to go Emily Bagnall (Surrey League) was striking out at the front with team mate Rachel Pryzbyiski, and led by 10 seconds before being absorbed by the vigilant bunch. However Emily was not yet finished as she went away again this time with fellow Surrey Leaguer Lise Soerrensen but with the final lap approaching the bunch snaffled them up.

 

 

The riders came around the final corner, lining up for the sprint finish with Marriane Britten leading out previous year’s winner Janet Birkmyre, they had a small gap over the bunch and tragically caught wheels. Birkmyre hit the deck hard and suffered multiple injuries, she is now at home recovering. Marianne Britten (Max Gear RT) took the win with Hannah Walker (Motorpoint/Marshals Pasta ) in 2nd place and  Amelia Cambridge (Impsport team A) in 3rd place.
