Beeline Road Race 65 miles 2-3 Cat 21st Sept
On this 4 Lap hilly circuit it was always going to be a tough race with only around 40 riders finishing out 80. On the first lap riders like Paul Doel and Mick Fuller went out the back from Team Quest as the race climbed up from Islip. Gregory showed great strength at only 16 but on the last lap coming out of Islip like many others let that gap get bigger and came in a few mins down on the main group of 30 riders which included the experienced Scott Holmes. Gregory’s group of around 6 riders caught Colin Roshier on the last climb with Greg sprinting in ahead of his group. Scott 28th Greg 35th.
