25/07/2011 - MID SHROPSHIRE WHS CIRCUIT RACES REPORT
The inaugural Mid Shropshire Wheelers circuit race picked the best weather of the day. The first race for ABCs saw a compact field reel in several short lived breaks. The final lap saw Paul Belfield (Stone Wheelers CC) hold onto a two second lead and snatch victory from two hard chasing Brooks Cycles riders Chris Horsfield and Paul Nicholas. Chris Horsfield also took the prime. The DEFs were next off and with rain threatening Wolverhampton Wheelers rider Andy Jones took the race on from the start. His lone break was never challenged as the group reeled in any hopeful breakaways. The final tight sprint saw a Wolverhamton Wheelers clubmate John Kriskinans taking second and Martin Hackley (Team Jewson - Mick Ives Racing) a very close third.
