With legs on fire and good form from winning the AJ Bell Tour of Britain Skoda King of the Mountains & Eisberg Sprint competitions – Jacob Scott [Canyon DHB Sungod] sprints to victory in the final round of the HSBC-UK National Road Series Beaumont Trophy in Stamfordham, Northumberland fending off Alexandar Richardson [Alpecin-Fenix] as the two go clear on the final small circuit.
It was a tail of two-halves. The front half of the race, and the chasing peloton at times around the 182km course.
Four riders broke free in the first couple of kilometres with five more catching on including series leader Jacob Scott [Canyon DHB Sungod], Cameron Jeffers [Ribble Weldtite Pro Cyling], Owain Roberts [Wales Racing Acadamy], Ross Holland, Bradley Symonds [Saint Piran], Joseph Rees [Bikestrong KTM], Julian Roche [Richardson-Trek DAS], Jordan Peacock [Spirt Bontrager BSS Rotor].
Toby Jarvis [Team PB Performance] bridged across and a stable breakaway built up a lead gaining up-to three-minutes by the 70km marker.
Owain Roberts claimed the King of the Mountain points ascending the Ryals on the first couple of occasions.
By the third ascend, the lead had dropped, but the chasing peloton were strung out in a thin line. Matt Gibson [Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling] and Alex Richardson [Alpecin-Fenix] were well placed towards the front of affairs.
One final big circuit saw the original leaders caught, but another counter attack threw eight more riders into the mix including Scott & three team-mates including Robert Scott. This time joined by Richardson, Matthew King [Team PB Performance] & Zeb Kyffin [Ribble Weldtite Pro Cycling] and Gibson.
Scott & Richardson forged ahead on the final small circuit to battle the win with a larger group building for the final podium place sprint. Matt Gibson led the remaining leading group across the line ahead of Ross Lamb [SwiftCarbon Pro Cycling] getting in on the mix. King finished fifth. Team Inspired’s Alfie George brought the bunch over the line and was the best U23 on the day.
“When you are on good form, you don’t want to throw away the race. I’ve made the most of it in the last few weeks”. [after the Tour of Britain].
