Tom Bell & Matt Myers were both in action on Saturday, riding the 3/4 event at Hillingdon, with Matt snapping up 7th place, closely followed home by Tom in 15th after a lively contest in which both riders featured to the fore.
"Twickenham were out racing again this weekend at Hillingdon in the Magic Homes Crit. Tom and I were the only ones racing from the team, although a big thanks goes to Dave for coming to watch us do battle with all the best 3rd cat racers of the south east.
As far as the race was concerned, Tom amd I decided to make the pack hurt and split up the race abit in our pre-race conspiring. I think the expression was "make them wish they never entered"!!!
So we both attacked altenately right from the gun, as soon as one of us was brought back the other went.
I myself got in the break that looked like it was the one that would stick (with tom policing the bunch), yet as with all 3rd cat races some on the headless chckens in the bunch chased us down (needless to say they were not the ones who won in the end!!).
The race came down to a bunch sprint where me and
tome managed to get 7th and 15th respectively, although in hindsight we
were the strongest there and marked men from the start!!
Well done Tom, and thanks Dave, for a great race and I encourage all potential racers to speak to one of us at the clubhouse. Twickenham dominance of the 3rd cat scene is inevitable."
