Hampton in escape to final victory

TWO road races promoted by the Maldon & District CC at Steeple in Essex rounded off the mass start season.

In the 65-mile race for higher category riders the winner was Russell Hampton (Sprocket Pro Cycling) who was until recently a full time racer with British Cycling’s squad in Italy.

Hampton crossed to an early break and eventually forged on alone. Roger Maidment (East London Velo) took second place, lifting himself into the runner-up spot in the Eastern Road Race League individual rankings.

Malcolm Smith (St Ives CC) , Dom Schils (Van Eyck Sport) and Phil Hetzel (IBC) took the next three places.

Third and fourth category roadmen had a separate 43-mile race starting a few minutes later on the same circuit.
