23 riders started this week and at least Antony Wallis (Ciclos Uno) waited until 7 laps had gone before he took off, taking Andrew Bates (Colourtech RT) with him.
With a few more laps gone David Darrow (Eagle RC) and Martin Meades (Ciclos Uno) left the bunch in chase of the two leaders. At the half distance the two leaders had lapped the bunch and where now on there way to lapping the other two riders. Now with only 5 laps to go Mr Wallis left his breakaway companion to finish on his own to secure another win.

Sean's report - BUM SHAKA LAKA - CHORIZO BOY 2ND IN THE SPRINT OF THE SAUSAGE EATERS !!!!!
more like it, a sedate start, ease yourself in, let Dave and the quick
people go, watch Tony have a few digs with the usual suspects (helped
chase him down once) and get away, then settle in at your level and the
attrition starts. But most enjoyable in the wind, yoyo pace until 50
minutes after which a few late attacks but altogether before final bend,
left sprinting just a little late, I was following Colortech who's
normally there or thereabouts but Ilford crest(usually wears Brixton
cycles on a Look, commutes my way on it, good rider often in second
group) was too far up i was catching him rapidly but road ran out. Felt
good after sunday debacle. Must sprint earlier than at Dunton is my
Tone thought I should have been up with him, will
attempt if it happens but scared of blowing and missing the sprint of
the sausage eaters.
Julian, the HH were at 6 last year, as i had
difficulty making them when I actually looked after my children. I
imagine your boss has just changed the clocks and you're working later.
You'd have enjoyed the race.
Andy was experimenting using Armadillos as race tyres.
SH Writes:- thanks for all of the helpers who turned up today and provided, marshaling, signs, time keeping and teas. If it was not for your efforts - there wouldn't be a race at all. Once again thank you. To the riders who took part, thanks Damien for giving encouragement when you caught me at Audley End - you did an awesome ride - especially as you rode up all the way from Whipps Cross. Congratulations to Phil H, Carlito (nearly there Carlito) Neil, Dave Y, Tony M, Tony P, Charlotte, Paul, and also to Alastair Campbell - very good ride there! I hope I haven't left anyone out. It looks like the SERC could do with some new blood but they did the best they could I'm sure.

Alistar did and incredible ride and must be also pushing Lofthouse close in sn intelligence race as his head is so full of information. Just heard Jo Perrot won't national TT that's made my day as I really dislike seeing some boring one style rider winning it year in and out. Jo just did the Ras.
