National Championships at Hillingdon 13th June
Peter Jones rode the National Championships at Hillingdon and he narrowly missed out on the medals. The hot favorite Alan Forester from Wales took his title from Peter, as he attacked several times and with Peter mainly the only one shutting him down he finally got away with three younger cat riders and Peter tried so hard to catch him, but finally the elastic broke and he stayed away to the finish. It wore Peter down having carrying out all of the chasing and when it came to the bunch sprint he was not so strong after all of the efforts he made earlier trying to chase down and he just missed out getting the bronze by a whisker finishing 4th.
At least next year he has lots to look forward to as he will be in the older category.
Scott Holmes rode on Sunday and finished 5th missing out on the 4 man break with Craig Wilson taking the victory.
