The 24th of October was Jacks penultimate race of the season, he was invited to be part of a special event in the first round of this year’s revolution series on the track, where he was competing for his university team for the final time in the varsity team pursuit competition, on the London Olympic velodrome.
Fresh from Friday nights exertions round the boards in London, Jack decided to ride the first round of the Apres cyclopark series in Kent. The race began late afternoon and he was involved in the action from the start with a few early attacks testing out the twisty circuit as well as the competition, with strong cross winds leading into the finishing straight it made for an interesting race. After around 20 minutes Jack managed to get away with 1 other rider and quickly established a lead over the main bunch, 40 minutes into the race the pair were joined by 2 more riders and the foursome worked together well to maintain their advantage. With two laps to go jack took his opportunity to attack and managed to maintain a significant gap on the other three riders to take a solo win.
Jack would like to thank all the sponsors for their help and support this season moda, American classic, lake, rotor, vanguard, chapeau, high 5. And would also like to say a big thank you to Russell Rowles and Chris Parks for the help running the team. Onwards and upwards next season!
