Dean Downing Wins Yorkshire Regional Championship

Report: Paul Summers

Masters – Set around the historic battlefield of Towton, where Yorkshire defeated Lancashire in the War of the Roses, both the Masters and Elite Races delivered aggressive racing from the gun. The Masters event saw a break of 8 establish a 1 minute lead within the first two laps. This set the pattern for the rest of the race as the breakaway worked smoothly and the bunch failed to establish an effective chase. The winner would come from the break, and it was Rob Watkinson who took Gold in a fine solo effort that gained 10 seconds by the finishing line. Richard Moore took Silver in a hard fought sprint with Glen Turnball who claimed bronze.

Elites – The elite race followed a similar pattern, with two select groups forming during the early stages. As the race wore on, and the strong winds began to build, the two groups became one, and a flurry of attacking began. At the bell, it was Alastair Kay who led by 10 seconds, followed by a group of six containing pre race favourites Dean Downing and Tom Stewart. As the race entered the finishing straight, the break was back together, and it was Dean Downing who pipped Adam Duggleby to take the win in a fiercely contested sprint. Tom Stewart led in the remnants of the break to claim Bronze.
