A busy block of racing for national development team rider Bradley Symonds last week. The London Nocturne was first up with Bradley racing strongly to take 23rd place and to finish amongst very diminished numbers as a strong element of the second group on the road. Mid-week saw Bradley race at the Milton Keynes Bowl E123 and take 5th place. Finally, on Saturday, at the Horwich Cycle Festival, Bradley escaped from the main group to bridge to four leaders finally taking a fine 5th place in the prestigious Emerson GP. This prepares him perfectly for the next block of races beginning with the Tour of the Reservoir on Saturday and Sunday; great work Bradley.
