Scott Thwaites won the first ever Science Fitness Cycle Races on Thursday 2nd July.
In what was a thrilling three way sprint finish, Pete Williams came in second, followed closely by Tom Moses in a three-way sprint.
Organised and successfully run by Velo29 Events and Craven District Council, building on the legacy of the 2014 Tour de France, Science Fitness were involved as the headline sponsor of what proved to be a thrilling set of race.
Thwaites (who races for Bora), Williams (One Pro Cycling) and Moses (JLT Condor) are all training partners, which showed as they pulled away from the rest of the field early on, maintaining their distance and lapping the majority of the field twice. It added a certain amount of spice to the finale as they closed in on the finish line!
It was Thwaites who came out the victor (just) in an entertaining finish with Williams practically in touching distance as they crossed the finish line. Scott pulled on the Science Fitness winners’ jersey, presented by our very own Brand Manager David who was thrilled to share the podium with such great athletes.
Meanwhile, in the Under 16s Event, Jim Brown from Holmfirth Cycling club took top honours, with Alex Ridehalgh (Speedflex) and Jack Ford following to make the top three.
In the Under 14s Event, a podium of Joshua Greenwood (Kirklees Cycling Academy), Finlay Cooper-Oldroyd (Bradford Olympic) and Joe Wilson (Achieve Northside Skinnergate), with a top 3 girls finish of Ava Oxley, Sophie Thackaray and Lucy Horrocks, provided an exciting warm up to the main event.
