NATHAN Edmondson won the Nige Moore Memorial Road Race, held by members and friends of VC Bradford Pennine Cycles.

The 68km race had a complete field of 48 starters.

Competitors had to complete 20 laps of the former Halifax RC track.

The winner was Edmondson, of PMRR, who went on a lone assault with eight laps to go, and at one point was able to increase his lead to over 50 seconds.

Nigel Modlinsky and Frank Beresford in second and third worked hard to close the gap on Edmondson, but were unsuccessful.

The remainder of the peloton finished together in a final sprint.

The first woman finisher was Joanna Lockwood of Hopey Bicycle Repairs, with Lewis Carenko-Clements of BBM Revolution Cycling Club the first junior finisher.

The race featured three prime laps: 5, 10 and 15.

The results for each lap were: Lap 5 – won by David Nearne of South Shields Velo CC; Lap 10 – won by Thomas Harmer of PMRR; Lap 15 – won by Edmondson.

Lap 15 is known by regulars as the "Lone Wolf" lap in memory of Ken Russell, who was the 1952 winner of the Tour of Britain and a friend of VC Bradford Pennine Cycles Cycling Club.

The prize was donated by his wife Renee and her family.

The organisers are grateful to all their sponsors for putting on a fantastic day.
