ALLEN TAKES EAST OF ENGLAND CHAMPIONSHIP
Trevor Allen, won the East of England XC Championship this past weekend. On a fast, but windy course, Trevor was able to take the title and work his way up the Elite rankings.
The race took place 50km north of London at Codham Park in Essex. At the end of the first lap, Trevor was in third position overall, but was pushing hard on a forwards march. By the 5th lap the 22 year old was in the lead. It was a lead that he didn’t relinquish until the 7th and final lap. Finishing second overall Elite, he was the highest placed English rider, and therefore took the title.
On the 7th and 8th of August Kim Tofaute and Benjamin Brochhagen took part in an 8 man works team at the 24 hr Race in Duisburg. The race was scheduled training for Kim and Benny, to allow them to get everything honed prior to the 24hr World Championship (Europe) which takes place this coming weekend. The race however was suspended after 19 hours, owing to torrential rain and thunderstorms. The team was placed in second in their category at the time.
The World Championship this weekend however is again the focus. While Kim and Benny tackle the pair’s race, hoping to match or better their Silver Medal of last year, Trevor will be going for the solo title.
The race will be updated throughout the 24 hour period on the blog at www.ergon24.com so if your German is up to it, you can ride along with us.
