Gold and Silver for Global Racing Team
Wyman takes UK National Cyclo Cross Championships
Champion makes successful defence of crown
In the first race of 2007, Global Racing Team riders put in commanding performances to take 1st and 2nd in the Women’s National Cyclo-Cross Championships in Southampton last weekend.
Defending Champion Helen Wyman returned in confident mood, having had some very good results over the Christmas period in Belgium. Team-mate Gabby Day was also entering the race in great form, having had 10 finishes in the top 10 of UCI races this season.
Wearing the pink and white colours of Global Racing for the first time, World Number 3, Helen Wyman and Gabby Day, started of one of hardest courses the National Champs has been run on for many years. The running track start provided the riders with a great opportunity to get their places settled and Helen took to the front immediately. Behind her, UK Number 1 Gabby Day, took up the chase of Helen and managed to start to increase her advantage over the group chasing for third place.
Finishing on the short uphill road section, Helen eventually finished 2 minutes up on Gabby, who in turn was over a minute up on her nearest rival, Isla Rowntree.
2007 couldn’t have started much better for Global Racing Team and Helen and Gabby now move on to World Cup races before the World Championships at the end of January.
