Wyman and Day score 1-2
was the Elite National cyclo-cross championships across Europe and in the
UK, Swift Racing had World Number 5 Helen Wyman lining up with team-mate
Gabby Day for the UK Title.
a very well prepared Sutton Coldfield course, resembling many in mainland
Europe, the race had 22 starters. Getting away fastest was Gabby Day, who
exited the road section first ahead of team-mate Wyman.
Not happy in 2nd place, Helen moved quickly past Gabby and
the Swift Racing pair headed clear of the rest of the field.
Lap 2, Helen had a small technical problem, costing her the lead of the
race, however after a swift change of bike Helen started to pursue Gabby.
On lap 3, Helen launched what was to prove to be a definitive move on
the road section.
Over the final 2˝ laps, Helen steadily moved away from Gabby to
secure her 3rd title in a row.
after the race, Helen said, ‘this win is as good as the first.
I don’t think any pro ever gets tired of winning.
In my new team colours, there is never a better way to start the
was also the hardest to win as I knew just how good Gabby has been in Europe
Anyone who can get in the top 10 of a World Cup (Day was 9th
in Pijnacker this season) is always going to be a threat.’
In the large crowd at Sutton Park was the head of Swift Motorhomes who clearly enjoyed his first day with the team and was very pleased with the result. It was also the first day that the new Bio-Racer backed team have been able to show their 2008 colours.
