Directeur sportif Marcel Six on the way to his Bovingdon Bomber win for Verulam


It was a case of ‘the boss showing the team how it’s done’, as Verulam’s directeur sportif, Marcel Six, won the opening round of the 2017 HHCC Bovingdon Bomber Criterium Series.

Luke Houghton was seventh and Gavin Bench also made the top 20.

Six scrambled across to a two-man break and once bridged the gap, the trio worked well together eventually lapping the rest of the field.

And on the last lap the boss countered a late attack from Ryan Allen of Nottingham University CC and sprinted to the win.

Matt Watson and Jamie Maxen were in action at round two of the MK Bowl Youth Midweek Racing series with Watson picking up an excellent sixth place.

A six-strong team also raced in a Thames Velo race.

And 10th overall means Houghton climbs for a category three racer to a category two, a perfect present for his 18th birthday.
