Critchlow 6th at Roy Thame Cup National B

Andy Critchlow was 6th in the Roy Thame Cup after spending 100 kilometers riding in the break with top UK riders including Dan Bigham.

The 120 kilometer National B level race attracted a strong field, including riders from the Madison Genesis pro team, Saint Piran and regional squads representing Scotland and Wales.

Riders had to contend with strong winds blowing across the course and Andy attacked early on the first lap before being caught. He initially missed the successful break but managed to bridge across to the 9 rider group solo.

The breakaways worked together well to build a lead of two minutes on the field, which started to splinter towards the end of the race.

Andy sprinted to 6th after eventual winner Kieran Savage from the Cycling Sheffield trade team broke clear with 5km to go. The result is his best at elite level since returning to the sport three years ago.
