The GPN Builders Rock & Road Bikes racing cyclist battled to third place in the national race at round five of the MK Bowl Spring Series.

His efforts were boosted by the work done by team-mates Clay Davies, Marcel Six and Michael Parry.

And with Strudwick battling it out in the break ahead, the rest made sure the gap remained.

Strudwick said: “It was amazing to see the GPN-R&R team work so well together and for all the guys to sacrifice their chances behind me was something I haven’t been part of before.

“It only motivates me to keep on improving and one day return the favour.”

Matt Watson had started the day off well by claiming sixth place in the category three and four race.

That is enough to propel the talented youngster ever closer to the much desired cat two license.
