Cross: Loake gets off the mark in Redruth

Velocake Cross/South West Cyclo-Cross League Round 6
Location: Redruth, Cornwall
Event: 27 October 2013
Report: Snowdon Sports

Securing his first victory of the current series, Matt Loake (Southfork Racing) pulled clear from a leading trio over the closing two laps of a soggy Redruth School course to win VC Velocake’s sixth round of the South West League.

The Newquay 34-year-old came home ahead of veterans winner Tim Carpenter (3 Sixty Performance RT) and Matt Noble (Plymouth CX) and roadman Chris Opie (Team UK Youth), making a rare cyclo-cross appearance, after a closely-fought race in warm but windy conditions on a circuit including grassland, tarmac, banking and a flight of steps.
