Round 7 of the N&DCA series - 4 in top 20 and 2nd team

After their victorious performance in round 6 the team went into round 7 of the Northampton & District eerie with high hopes, but narrowly missed out on the team prize by just 11 seconds and had to settle for second.

As in round 7 Sam Hayes lead the team home with an excellent 22:57 for 9th place, but he was pushed all the way by Hugo Hocknell who was just 6 seconds behind to finish in 11th. Simon Doyle was again part of the team prize, with his ride of 24:00 edging out his long-time team rival Steve Robinson who clocked 24:22.

Lyndon Lewis showed that his form is coming now he is back to regular racing by recording 28:34 around the lumpy circuit to finish in 37th and Stuart Hocknell finished comfortably in the top 50 with 33:26.

With three rounds to go the team now stand in 2nd place in the overall team standings, so a big push could see them lift the trophy at the end of the year.
