Following on from a great weekend whereby Simon Baxter won in Scotland and Lynn Hamel won the ladies 25m TT at Crathorne the team have done it again (Read article).
The Anderside Classic is a tough hilly course over 90 miles just north of Kilmarnock. The break was established early in the race when David Lines – Pedal Power Endura-Forme Racing was followed by Kit Gilham – Herbalife Leisure Lakes Bikes.com. They were soon joined by Robbie and Colin Huphrey – Sportscover Altura and then Ben Greenwood – Vanilla Bikes.com and Andrew Whitehall – Equipe Velo Ecosse/Montpelliers.
Defending champion Evan Oliphant of Team Raleigh UK chased hard to recapture his title but was monitored by Andrew Hawdon and Simon Baxter of Team Herbalife Leisure Lakes Bikes.com to neutralise and potential threat.
With Lines and Whitehall loosing touch on the uphill finish Humphrey gave it his all but was no match for Robbie Hassan has he beat Greenwood by half a wheel with Kit Gilham coming third.
