First win of the season for Oakes Insurance sponsored road race team...

First win of the season for Oakes Insurance sponsored road race team...

On a breezy overcast day this reporter arrived after the off for the first of the Pedalpusher Series due to reporting on another story.

Viewing the competitors it was clear that Joe Perkins was in strong form. He took to the front of the pack and was leading them around lap after lap. Once advice was shouted to him he did, on occasions, sit in but due to having so much strength he kept going to the front. The other riders were now wise to the fact he was the best rider there so let him do all the work. On the final lap in the back straight Perkins and 2 others broke from the rest of the field. Perkins was in 3rd place off the final bend but it was obvious he had the beating of the 2 others. Perkins powered over the line in first place without even getting out of the saddle.

On speaking to him after he said "I felt so strong that I wanted to be on the front all the time. The back straight we were going at between 30 and 35 mph. I am really pleased with this win. "

Well done Joe a great ride for your first time in Beeston RC colours.
