Luke Jones & Jamie Kershaw travelled to Milton Keynes again on Saturday for Round 2 of the Hup Spring Circuit Race Series.
Jamie took to the start line first in the U12’s race, and the racing today was anti-clockwise around The Bowl.
Jamie rode a great race again, and chased hard from the start. He did most of the work into the bend at the bottom of the course, which was into a strong headwind. The other riders didn’t want to share the workload and Jamie tired quickly, he said he won’t be doing that again. He battled on and sprinted up the last climb into a fantastic 6th place.
Luke took to the start line next in the U14’s boys race. He took his turns on the front, and positioned himself well for any attempts of an attack. Other than a few stragglers the bunch stuck together so when the bell rang it was to be an uphill sprint for the line.
Another fantastic sprint for Luke and just missed the podium by a hundredth of a second but still a superb 4th place.
Great racing by both riders again today and both lunging for the finish. Now onto the next race.
