Gillingham Wheeler Mark Geddes participated in his first road race at Merryfield airfield Ilton in the Somerset Road Club Circuit race on Sat 17th April. In near perfect conditions Mark and Mike Smith raced in the 3/4th Cat event in a field of over 60 riders.
In a fast and furious race, no one had the strength to make a significant break and stay clear of the chasing bunch. On the fast run in to the finish, Mark & Mike were both comfortably placed in the in the bunch sprint. Mike again had his handlebar mounted Bike Cam running and a short clip of the footage is here on the video page. By the way Mark is number 101 (if you didn’t recognise his rear end)
