Condor Cycles London 3-day

 

Words by Stuart Benstead; Pictures by Antony Edmonds

The Condor Cycles London 3-day stage race for 2nd and 3rd category riders took place on three of London’s purpose built cycle circuits over the 2014 May Bank Holiday weekend – the new Olympic Velopark, the Cyclopark near Gravesend in Kent, and the Hillingdon Cycle Circuit… Read More >

 

 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

 

East London Velo, the club staffing stage 1 of the Condor Cycles London 3-day at VeloPark, Stratford, were more than please when their rider Wayne Crombie broke clear of the five leaders with three, one-mile laps to go to come in alone.

So for evermore he will be the very first winner at VeloPark, as this was the first race on the new circuit constructed alongside the London Olympic Velodrome.

 
The pace was well over 25mph and rapid when considering the field were 2nd and 3rd cats, although Wayne admitted that for the past two seasons he has only just missed reaching 1st cat.

Stage 2 was at the CycloPark circuit, near Gravesend in Kent, on Sunday 4th May.
 
“That was a road race, not just a regular circuit criterium.” was the general comment by riders and spectators alike at the end of the second stage of the Condor Cycles London 3-day as the field was split asunder over the 50 miles. The hilly contours took their toll.
 
Victory was taken by James Sale (Pro Cycle Hire UK RT) three seconds ahead of stage one winner Wayne Crombie (East London Velo) which, with the benefit of mid-ride time bonuses, took Sale into the general classication lead by 12 seconds ahead of Crombie. Third place on the stage, 22 seconds down on the winner, was good enough for Rolandus Razgauskis (La Fuga) to go third on GC.
 
Battle was set to resume at the Hillingdon circuit. Despite its easier contours, many of the main field were still in with a GC chance, being one minute down, an achieveable deficit after two tough 50 mile stages.

 
Many of the riders admitted this was a complete new experience, having to finish the distance despite being dropped, but a very welcome challenge. This was especially true for the junior riders and particular credit has to go to under-16 rider, Mattew Webber (Catford CC/Equipe Banks), who was 8th on GC despite being on a restricted gear.

Stage 3 Hillingdon

“I hope we’ve sparked peoples imagination.” Luke Anderson summed up the Condor Cycles London 3-day on three London area closed circuits after the final stage at Hillingdon. He was chief judge and part of the multi-Region organising team, with his mother Kim, lynchpin of the SERRL, playing a vital part in providing the transponder system. The idea had originated between Stuart Benstead, who was the event coordinator, and Jez Cox of VeloPark where the first stage was the very first road race held at that brand new venue.

The winner of that first stage, Wayne Crombie (East London Velo) rode consistently at the head of affairs from then on to maintain his GC lead, finishing comfortably in the bunch on the final stage having done much of the work to ensure that the breakaway pair were kept down to their eventual 13 second advantage.

Stage winner Phil Giles (Beeston CC) was happy enough to take the stage prize with a well taken sprint ahead of his companion Simon Barnes (London Dynamo) and lifting Giles up to 4th place on GC.

The experiment to find if there was a demand for a stage race held just on closed circuits proved a success with 63 entries, restricted to 2nd and 3rd cats, and catering for a complete range of ages and abilities. Surely a star of the future must be Youth rider Matthew Webber (Catford CC/Equipe Banks) who finished 14th on GC and gained invaluable experience, dare it be claimed perhaps, more than the rest of his team riding the Wiltshire Star RR. At the other end of the age range was 55 year old Paul Buckley (Thames Velo) who found the race much easier than the infamous Les Sables desert ultra marathon which he has done twice.
 
In fact there were a number of vets riding, with the best of them being Combie, the winner, who is a 41 year old family man with a full time job, which means not riding as much as some others. Nevertheless he enjoys his racing and when he does make an appearance he is often the winner
 
As the organisers suspected, the entry attracted riders looking for a challenge, but not wanting open road racing and preferring the guaranteed safety of the wealth of closed road circuits now situated in the London region. All are agreed that it should be held again next year when this success will attract many more riders with the restrictions of an open road race.
