Amy Harvey has claimed her first success since a winter switch to Verulam Reallymoving.
The former Barking & Dagenham rider crossed the line first at the CAMS-BASSO Grand Prix, held at Redbridge Cycle Centre.
Still a junior but eligible to race in the category three senior race, the new star of the St Albans cycling race team beat Ellen Inglis of Team OnForm into second with Emma Watson of Grinta Coaching third.
She said: “The three of us managed to get in the winning break and we ended up lapping the rest of the field but by attacking on the final climb of Hog Hill, I was able to win the sprint.”
The event was backed by the British UCI Continental CAMS-Basso women’s team.
The squad, born out of the Brother UK-Tifosi team, is highly active in promoting women’s racing at all levels and under the shining sun, the day long programme of races was a huge success.
Verulam Reallymoving's Paul Caton was just outside the podium places at the Sevale Road Race.
