Today at Stourport Sports Club Circuit, Worcester St Johns CC held their Summer Criterium which was the final round of the Over 65’s Points Series.
Despite a number of attempts to get away Bunny had to watch as his closest rival got a 30 second lead with one other. Eventually Bunny chased on his own, later to be joined by two others and together they gradually whittled down the lead catching the two escapees with just over 5 laps to go. On the final lap Bunny ensured he was first into the last two wet corners and sprinted to what he thought was a good first place. Unfortunately a couple of riders complained that the three chasers had been assisted by a rather slow moving faster race, despite the three overtaking that bunch who they felt were hindering their chase.
The organisers decision is final! Bunny and his two breakaway companions were demoted to 3rd, 4th and 5th places. Frustration.
The Compensation was that the the overall series was already in the bag and Bunny took home the winners cheque and medal.
